the snack bar is another experiment i did on being someone else, during the master program from Akv St. Joost. during my trip to minsk I imagined myself being a local lady. but what does she look like? googling ‘lady from belarus’ brought me to a mail-order bride website, and I decided then and there: that’s what I need to become. having my very white-russian-looking pictures taken I visited the agency and before I knew it, I was on the website, ready to be ordered. unfortunately I didn’t find my future husband that trip, so instead I mingled in public spaces. The short shows an unscripted scene of ‘playing the field’ without the advantage of actually speaking the same language.
