Estoy penetrando en tu vida (I Am Penetrating in Your Life), shows Carlos Pazos as a seducer, addressing the viewer through an attractive self-image that has undergone a transformation brought about by his own desire to reinvent himself as a star. The “star” image as a way of running from the subjectivity of the artist is a recurrent theme in the work of Marcel Duchamp – in his alter ego Rrose Sélavy – and Andy Warhol. Both were influences on Pazos, a frequent self-portraitist, who uses the notion of masquerade to exhibit a banal, artificial subjectivity. A “star” (Voy a hacer de mí una estrella [I’m Going to Make Myself a Star], another series from 1975) is the expression of the absence of the original or the representation of the absence itself of reality. By means of this artificial beautified image of himself, Pazos constructs a character to hide behind and to satisfy his need to hide himself in exhibition.
