Tine Guns (1983) presently shows a video installation at Lief hertje en de Grote Witte Reus (LhGWR) with self made footage of situations where people wear masks (such in preparation to her new film To Each His Own Mask).

Guns’ shows masked people both in a carnival-like situation or at a political demonstration.

People become anonymous and their actions turn into predictable rituals. The installation gives the viewer both the idea of being a looker on and of being a participant.

As a teaser to her film it works quite well. It also presents the moments very well where individual choices become anonymous.
