With Self-Portrait as Clone of Jeanne d’Arc Bunny Rogers offers a gateway into the mythology of her generation. Employing erasure not as a literal gesture but rather as a playful, rhetorical figure, Rogers removes her own image as the subject of self-portraiture and replaces it with an adopted persona – the angsty Joan of Arc from MTV’s cult hit Clone High, an animated series that aired between 2002-2003. Blown up to monumental proportions, Roger’s serial self-portrait features her alter ego in fifteen different positions and situations, including a plethora of symbols and references drawn from her personal life and pop culture. Using the cartoon character as a surrogate of herself, Rogers spins a web of associations that are both subjective and relatable. In her practice, Rogers often references the world of online gaming and the malleable identities endemic to role-playing and fantasy communities while exploring themes of alienation, violence, desire, and the elastic notion of self that is present in contemporary life and mediated society. Using her character as a proxy, the artist also reflects on the complexity of adolescent femininity – and its inherent angst, ferocity, desire, and narcissism.

Selected solo exhibitions: Kunsthaus Bregenz, Bregenz (2020); Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt (2019); Marciano Art Foundation, Los Angeles (2018); Whitney Museum of Art, New York (2017); and Musée d’Art Moderne, Paris (2015).
