Public Intimacies: Anne Charlotte Robertson’s Five Year Diary
Institute of Contemporary Arts
Five Year Diary, dir. Anne Charlotte Robertson

Over the course of nearly two decades, Anne Charlotte Robertson produced Five Year Diary (1981 – 97). Ultimately totalling 36 hours, the video diary – renowned for both its radical transparency as an autobiographical document and its rare screenings – is an obsessive chronicle of Robertson’s daily life and mental health.

An experiment in self-therapy, Robertson’s ‘story of a mind’s survival’ records the minutiae of her day to day existence, cushioned by the artist’s sharp wit and probing self-reflexivity.
