Dress up: Oriental Barbie


Dress up: Oriental Barbie was performed at the Williams College Museum of Art in Williamstown Massachusetts on November 21, 2013. For two hours, my character stood still and silent on a plinth while inviting spectators to play “dress up” with the body. On a nearby table, there were various accessories including scarves, makeup and brushes, and a blonde wig. On a garment rack there were traditional Iranian clothes, a chador and casual wear. I allowed the viewer to have full access to the body and complete control of representation.
