Title of sequence: Find Your Inner Dancer

Man as a figure is the focus of Nadine Arbeiter’s artistic work. She creates images with strong contours that revolve around real people, fictional characters and medial self-portrayals. It is always about the relationship of female and male role models and the view of the (female) artist on the world.

The series “Find Your Inner Dancer” shows different faces with closed eyes. They are extremely reduced to a few pixels and lines by the Teletext medium. The “blinking” effect and the use of color give an idea of an inner view of the Inner Dancer.
