The Role System
A body of work lasting approximately 7 years of development (2005-2011). In the beginning there were 3 sisters that Sari assumed as her alternative selves (or rather real self parts that were performed as if pretend selves). These 3 sister selves were named: Jessee-Liina, Caroliina & Starella. They existed in various forms throughout the 7 years, in videos, as live performances, and in textual form. From between 2009 to 2011 Sari made work about what it would mean to stop performing through these 3 sister roles - asking what it would mean to kill them off. By trying to stop performing through these personas, Sari accidentally multiplied them - ending up with additional persona selves considered to be her but not her. For example a personae named Purple Eyes appeared as did Swamp Sari. In the end Sari became free of all of her multiple selves by letting each role write out their own story - instead of parts they became one cohesive whole. The Role System in its parts ceased to exist in October 2011.
