After a decade-long career working as a professional model, Matilde Søes Rasmussen is playing with giving up control by handing over an intimate body of work to three separate professionals: 25 hours of raw footage filmed by herself during a three-year period documenting her modelling career in Chinese megacities.
In Unprofessional, Søes Rasmussen hired three filmmakers to each create their own film from the material, and thereby complete the artwork for her; documentary film director Eva Marie Rødbro, artist and musician Kim Richard Adler Mejdahl and fashion photographer Fingle Lee.
While simultaneously dictating the process and giving away the control over the result, Matilde Søes Rasmussen plays with ideas of ownership of both her own body and artwork, while questioning power structures within art and fashion. Who is looking at whom?
