In the trilogy BEATBEET I explore the topic of identity through the notion of forcefeeding. We are force-fed with the ideas of who we are, just like children are force fed with the food they hate. I use beetroots as a folkloric element and a symbol of an eastern european country side to which I was told I belong. It is also the food I was force fed.
