Sharing a dance with another person temporarily merges the souls, as two bodies move as one. Dancers connect hand to hand, cheek to cheek, chest to chest. A shared awareness of one another’s movements is at times so perceptive that it feels like the sharing of a mind. I’ve envisioned Argentine tango, famously a dance for two, as a dance between me and myself. The self portrait of the artist as dancer in various moments of leading and following explores the multiple self theory of personality, which proposes that the individual mind contains different sets of thoughts, desires, feelings, and behaviors organized into different selves. She Herself depicts moments of connection, harmonious to dissonant, within a self-relationship.
