“I'm pretty narcissistic, but that's okay. I make up for it with all of my other wonderful qualities.”
Sanders' personal art is focused primarily on the construction of identity-most notably, the schism between thought and behavior and between private and public. Who a person “is” is increasingly fluid. However, this is difficult to wrap one's head around, so people are generally defined by a fixed set of traits. If someone strays from the behavior expected of them (based on experience interacting with them in specific settings), they suddenly appear disingenuous.
This becomes more complicated when considering celebrities or historical figures. The private lives of those in the public eye are often labeled as “their real self”. Their public persona, by default, becomes the facade. Meanwhile, even in the most private of moments (to one extent or another) all people will behave according to how they wish to be perceived. Therefore, the delineation between when someone is genuine or putting on an act is moot.
