Esther Probst - Ophelia’s Second Stage

3:00, 2008, Video Art
The existence of the character Ophelia is defined by the male-dominated framework of Shakespeare’s "Hamlet". Her classic performance aims to disguise her unhapiness -- a role that does not suit her true pursuits.

Her rebirth symbolizes the slim promise of youth in the face of the status quo.
