Mask Faced & Bare Breasted Performance Artist ‘Narcissister’ Video Installation on The Bowery

 

New York – Friday, June 27, 2014

My favorite type of performance art (the type that involves female nudity) is taking place tonight at Petrella’s imports, a newsstand on Bowery and Canal in Manhattan, that has been turned into an art space.  The piece, by Narcissister, involves a video being projected onto a building opposite the newsstand depicting various women performing mundane everyday tasks while topless and wearing the Narcissister mask.

“It’s not just about freedom for women; it’s the idea that freedom for one means freedom for all and that it makes larger statements about freedom and equality.”

A quote by the anonymous artist who created the character of Narcissister in 2007 and has been portraying her in public ever sense from a recentan interview with writer Andrea Park for Metro.us. In the interview Narcissister goes into more depth about the project, her appearance on America’s Got Talent.

Read the full article and interview by Andrea Park on Metro.us, which also contains a NSFW gallery of Narcissister walking around the streets of NYC with mask on and breasts out.

Narcissister’s installation will show at Petrella’s Imports at Bowery & Canal at 9 p.m. on Friday; you can also see her photography at the Rockaway! arts festival from June 29 to Sept. 1 at Fort Tilden in Rockaway Beach.
