NARCISSISTER TAKES OFF HER MASK FOR ME

NARCISSISTER TAKES OFF HER MASK FOR ME

The masked performance artist Narcissister has been getting attention in downtown New York recently for her shows, which are full of sophisticated, eye-bending, often X-rated and slyly subversive sight gags. She never takes off her creepy plastic Barbie mask and doesn’t want anyone to know her real identity. But she recently sat down with me on the Lower East Side, for the New York TimesStyles section, to talk about what inspired her to create this playfully perverted masked madwoman.
