In this series of masked self-portraiture, I am performing my identity through manipulating fact and fiction. As a response to historic racism and oppression, I seek to challenge the white, western, male gaze that has mythologised and stereotyped Indigenous identity since colonisation, and by providing a subterfuge by which to return it.
