Narcissister: New Work | perFOREmance / december
Brooklyn-based visual and performance artist Narcissister creates provocative yet playful vignettes that reference neo-burlesque and employ a range of materials, including fashion accessories, fake body parts, handmade props, larger-than-life costumes and her own body. Heir to Narcissus, the boy in Greek mythology who fell in love with his own image reflected in a pool and wasted away from unsatisfied desire, Narcissister excused herself from a career in modern dance to focus on a visual arts practice that explores the relationship between sexuality, race and gender. For perFOREmance, Narcissister debuts new worktwo videos and one performancecontinuing her long-standing interest in challenging conceptions of feminist craft, gender objectification and commodity culture.
Please note this performance contains nudity and explicit sexual content.
perFOREmance, two three-day performance presentations in December 2012 and February 2013, provides a platform for the new and commissioned performances in Fore.
