This long-term project explores the problematics of naturalization by considering multiple sites in which this construct is articulated. In each site, the citizen/foreigner dynamic is produced through a series of tropes. The focus is primarily on the production of the Eastern European other via tropes of gymnastics, poverty, nationalism, violence and orphans – as well as the production of the Western citizen subject as a type of viewer (a way of watching). This project consists of a series of multi-channel video installation, 5 short videos, a series of border trespass interventions, interventions within immigration proceedings and wedding rituals.
