As a “double agent” in front and behind the camera, Moira Zoitl oscillates between her position of passive object of a video and the active author and thus exposes the mechanisms of narrative portraiture.
“Double Agent” outlines selected works of Moira Zoitl’s artistic practice from 1998 until the present. The video works, dealing with the stories of people from various cultural backgrounds, and also with the artist’s family context, are often installed in expansive spacial settings. She creates spaces of (hi-)story that place a focus on the spacial and temporal context of the people portrayed. Hereby architecture and the built environment are used as a constituent element of the protagonists.
