Marijke De Roovers work centers around the self, both disguised and exposed in contemporary internet culture. The self and its captive freedoms in the age of digital capitalism. The self as a facade and battlefield for attention and failure and hence disappointment in a grotesque, vulgar or pathetic staged world. In the film ‘do you believe in life after love?’ De Roover — in her characteristic disguises — performs the roles of those who remember her legacy upon her death. Marijke De Roover dances frolicking with Weltschmerz to the tones of a tragicomic autobiographical aria with no expectations of receiving applause.
