Upon entering the gallery, viewers are immediately confronted by King’s bald, mannequin-like portrait busts. Their expressive faces and diminutive scale encourage close observation. In Myself with Other Eyes (1987-88), forehead creases, neck wrinkles, and glass eyes are eerily realistic. On the other hand, the figure’s hairless, porcelain surface and hollow backside (which reveals the interior armatures that hold the piece together), reinforce its artificiality. The figure’s eyes—wide-open and piercing blue, the only agent of color—are the mesmerizing focal point. They are clearly foreign to the face, implants, of sorts, and bring to mind aspects of physical manipulation and cyborg technology.
