Je Suis Narcissiste

Je Suis Narcissiste
Raquel García Tomás

It seems an extremely opportune moment to talk of narcissism, this excessive self-admiration which invades everything: it aggrandizes our perception of ourselves and drives us to do everything on a grand scale, even when we have forgotten why we were doing things in the first place. With remorseless black humour, Je suis narcissiste presents to us a cultural events organiser who lives each day as if it were an obstacle race full of snags and hurdles between her and happiness. We have here a critique of contemporary reality, the world where the ego inflates to such a degree that it invades all spaces, above all the virtual ones.
