Monica Zeringue: Matador 

Monica Zeringue's Matador is the latest in the CAC's new Emerge Project series of exhibitions in the intimate oval gallery. A 42- by 360-inch drawing in graphite and thread on paper, Matador features those mysterious little girls that appear in so many of Zeringue's recent drawings; graceful, delicate little ingŽnues busily engaged in, what, some sort of munchkin kabuki? Could there possibly be an easy explanation, or is it just too psychological for words? Zeringue says: "The girls are pre-pubescent versions of myself in multiples, an investigation of identity, or more exactly, conflicting identities. Even though they are obviously the same girl, their faces differ enough to give them their own identity. In the workings of memory, time is compressed, stretched out, folded over and rearranged. The twinning, doubling and incomplete merging, the almost patterned repetition of poses reflects this. I am interested in the way all of these parts work together (or not) to compose identity." So there you go, nothing to it --Êpiece of cake. --ÊD. Eric Bookhardt
