Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art: Feminist Art Base: Vernita E Nemec AKA N'Cognita

Paper Doll

Paper Doll

Vernita E Nemec AKA N'Cognita. Paper Doll, 2005.

Description:
Many of my primarily solo performance works come out of memories. Paper Doll was inspired by a childhood memory of my sister and the paper dolls I loved as a girl. Here I am both the paper doll making her own clothing and a real woman talking about feminist fascinations and being a female in a man's world. Butoh movement and a monologue of 20 minutes.

Medium:
Performance
