The Story

“[Narcissister is] hugely inventive and shamelessly vulgar.” — The New York Times

“An enigmatic performance (and performer) that thrives in absurdity yet isn't afraid to play with sentimentality.” — Austin Chronicle

In Narcissister Organ Player, the enigmatic artist and performer Narcissister – whose creative and confronting work frequently explores gender, sexuality and racial identity – turns her gaze towards her family, and especially her often fraught relationship with her Moroccan-Jewish mother. The results are a unique, captivating and provocative film in which the performer examines her life and artistic practice in relation to her family and personal history. Delving into biography and masquerade, this vivid and evocative hybrid work is both a performance piece and a personal documentary that boldly and explosively explores themes of art and identity.
