The piece is composed of “black mirrors” that combine representations of “Indianness”, drawn from Mexico’s postcolonial cultural repertoire, with pre-Hispanic masks placed at the viewer’s eye-level. By incorporating the viewer’s body into the interplay between these portraits and reflections, Lasch puts pressure on the cultural associations and racial constructions that constitute the split identity of the post-colonial spectator.
