Multiple Exposure II took place at Blank, Torino, Italy.  I asked a tailor from Torino to “perform” for me. I gave the tailor a picture of Latif Yahia and asked him to remake a jacket that Yahia wears on this image. The image shows  Yahia in 1994 after his first interview with the western media. The “performance” was accompanied by an audio-work that I made for the installation Multiple Exposure 1 and that I re-edited for the occasion. In the audiowork we hear a man describing several situations in which Yahia is recorded on videocamera or photographed.
