Jury Selections

Pythia

Helle Kingbird BJERREGAARD

Video work [Denmark]

The inspiration for this video is Pythia, the name of priestesses who served as the Oracle at Delphi. Depicting a journey to Delphi, it remains uncertain whether the woman appearing in the video is the priestess herself, or a questionner on her way to consult the Oracle. The work expresses, through metaphoric reference to Greek mythology, the coexistence of opposing elements within human identity. (5 min. 27 sec.)
