The artist´s comment on the artwork: "My 20 minute long documentary video work "If you do this I will call you by your first name instead of mom" focuses to the complicated relationship between me and my mother. For five days I recorded with wireless microphones every level of our relationship: the shame, bitterness and longing which are results of alcohol addiction and child custody. Of the audio material I edited the video which combines different conversations and situations as chapters with my mom. The video was shot in different time indoors in the places important in my mother's life. Camera stays still in every take and people are lacking from the picture. The starting point for doing the work was the will to understand addiction, but more than that it tells about challenging love."
