Violaine Boutet de Monvel: Self-(De)-Exposure (2008).
Video presented at “Passage 2008: What Is The Human Condition?”, Clara M. Eagle Gallery (Murray), Vanderbilt University (Nashville), April 2008; “WCA International Video Shorts Festival 2009”, Korean Cultural Center (Los Angeles), February 2009.
