CAN YOU SEE MY FACE is a performance art piece commenting on one’s journey of unveiling their identity. I put layers of brown paper bags, and blindly draw my own face on each. The layers symbolize the complexity of self-perception. With deliberate unveiling, I peel off each layer, exposing the evolving self-portrait beneath. The final act involves heavy breathing into the bags I peeled—a symbolic gesture of anxiety upon self-scrutinization. This raw and authentic exploration invites reflection on the masks we wear, the layers we hide behind, and the empowering journey of self-discovery.
