Ymy Sfumato, alter ego: her performances and their artifacts
Within the last three years, I’ve done a couple of projects that feel out of character, even with some aesthetic coherence with other work. It seems that I have an alter ego. She wades in then takes over for these works. These project include some of “Miriam”, and they also project a different—cartoonishly aggressive—stance. Ymy includes live performance, and audience participation, something Miriam really doesn’t do.
