Mathilde ter Heijne: If It's Me, It's Not Me
by Jill Dawsey
Publisher's Description
Mathilde ter Heijne (*1969 in Strasbourg) deals with themes such as the role of women in politically motivated suicides or the representation of female victims of violence and war in the media. She often uses a life-sized mannequin of herself as a stand-in actress in her videos and her works on CD-ROM, and she also does the voice-overs for each of her alter egos.

The artist’s book If It's Me, It's Not Me presents Mathilde ter Heijne’s working methods, concepts, and ideas of the last ten years in her distinct handwriting. A “chronological archive of images” with a selection of quotes and illustrations of her works is supplemented by excerpts from literature and poetry, film and art-historical contributions, as well as interviews conducted by the artist with experts in fields of central importance for her recent work: woman’s role in society, suicide bombings, trauma therapy, and matriarchy research.
