Someone To Love, by Cristina Nunez
In 1988, in an attempt to overcome personal problems, Cristina Nuñez began to take self-portraits in private. Giving shape to her emotions and revealing her presence to the world, enabling her to turn an uncompromising gaze upon herself, but also to project herself as she wanted to be, these images became a form of self-therapy through which she learned who she is. Someone to Love (1988–2011) brings together for the first time all of the self-portraits that she made; The Self-Portrait Experience shares with viewers her method of interior exploration. These two paths, through which Nuñez states that, “The existing separation between art and therapy is intolerable,” now form the focus of her art.
After researching Holocaust history, Nunez discovered her own Jewish ancestry. She documents this search in one of her video self-portraits.
