Bohemian Barbie in Paris
I have been creating "Barbie" performances for nearly the past decade, in an effort to deal with being an aging woman. Various incarnations have been born but the primary works have been about "Bohemian Barbie" becoming an "Aging Activist Barbie". This image is of "Barbie in Paris," a guerilla performance presented at the Pompidou. I go on for about 20-30 minutes with fighting Barbies, putting on make-up and Butoh-izing various stereotypical postures of what a woman is supposed to be.
