Lilibeth Rasmussen: Being Human Being

Lilibeth Cancua Rasmussen’s Being Human Being         at the Nikolai gallery in Copenhagen is transformative – the video documentating the performance art and the exhibition left me with a sense of deep empathy for her plight as an individual mis-read, mis-understood, and struggling to be seen. Her use of her family in her work (and I saw two earlier video’s of hers at the National Gallery) is kind of a genetic extension of herself and her situation – growing the microcosm slightly larger – this work is universal in theme, and the work with her siblings really moved me – tracing the footprints across the floor.
