Pose, 2018

I am digitally and physically superimposing staged images of racial and ethnic minority women onto Cindy Sherman’s photographic performance. This doubling acts as modern layer to Sherman’s engagement with the discussion of problematic female depictions in cinema. These new characters challenge the viewer by confronting the camera with their gaze and becoming the main focus by covering Sherman’s body. They are simultaneously being erased because of the distressing that comes with the process of image transferring. Women of color are still forced to play a role that conforms and assimilates to the White dominated world. Although both eras of cinema are portrayed, this representation adds an inclusive and intersectional conversation about stereotypes and objectification that non-white women may also face.
