Performing a Lifetime is an exploration of bodies and identities belonging to the in-between. Saara Mahbouba and Gladys Camilo reflect on the complications of navigating between accurate representation of oneself and one’s community and the traps of performativity, appropriation, and self-exploitation. exploring the complexities of working ethically in a contemporary art scene that simultaneously lauds and punishes otherness, performing a lifetime taps into the artists’ personal experiences of embodying identities that are neither fully within nor without categories of otherness and hegemonic bodies.
