WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

With This Masquerade, Narcissister assembles a dozen duplicates of herself. What is behind the mask? Reconfiguring multiple feminisms, Narcissister's power rests in her play with ambiguity. She is covered, she is nude; she is thin, she is chubby; she is black, she is white; she is Barbie, she is suicide bomber; she is Mammy, she is Marie Antoinette; she is bottom, she is top; she is punk, she is hip-hop; she is human, she is animal; she is body, she is mind. She asks us what it means to decapitate and devour our own heads -- a question we can only answer with a curtsy.
