Identity itself is not an easy subject it has a weight to bear and can first be split into two fairly obvious categories one being personal and the other being social. In this project I explore digesting ones own façade, constructed by a need for external narratives. The performance reflects the sickly repulsion of the artificial and fake and the tradgerty of the loss of the authentic self.
