In the video “And I Acted on My Fantasies” the artist uses the phenomenon of serial killers as a reference point to explore the darker side of human nature, testing the links between sexuality and violence and the boundaries of rational behavior. The video shows the artist reciting a text constructed from interviews held with serial killers which were found on Youtube. The narrative created by editing together sentences spoken originally by the (male) killers themselves raises questions about fantasy, control and passion, and the notion of determinism. The video was shown in Hamburg and Rome.
