revisiting Yasumasa Morimura...

Self portrait (Actress)/After Liza Minelli I © Yasumasa Morimura

apparently almost a year ago I flirted with the idea of my latest series in a post about Yasumasa Morimura's self-portraits in drag. I was looking for an image when I came across this blogpost that I completely forgot I had written.

I especially find the last paragraph to be telling... "
I love the play with different historical figures and gender. I haven't thought about cross dressing that much, but have recently been thinking hard about new narratives from my past. This is a great find for some much needed inspiration."
