Harold Mendez’s collaborative-based performance A blurred and generalized projection of you and me explores a Samuel Beckett–like narrative of two characters in a barren and uncertain landscape, and their navigation of selfhood and identity. Mendez uses a multidisciplinary approach to illustrate how identity is constructed, dismantled and then stitched together. The two characters (Braille Teeth and Nobody) represent individuals seeking to transcend boundaries, borders and the trappings of place. Questioning the definitions of representation, specifically in addressing the real and the imaginary, this work attempts to depict a story of the self and the struggle of putting into language how one recognizes, defines and constitutes oneself and the world.
