1992, Video, 40:00 (Colour, Mono)
Working Portraits is a composite portrait based on conversations with over forty people who work as caretakers at the University of Calgary. Sujir looks at how identity is often defined externally by race, class, culture, gender and age, and how those cannot be treated as fixed limitations. The installation presents video portraits within the construction of the larger billboard-sized video text & image of the light boxes.
