Description

Published on the occasion of the exhibition ‘Evelyn Taocheng Wang: Allegory of Transience’ at De Hallen Haarlem in 2017, this slim monograph comprises a collection of diary-like texts previously posted by the artist on her Facebook page. The subject is the aesthetic, intellectual, and sentimental experiences she had as an undercover transgender masseuse in a massage parlour in Amsterdam, some of which are also quite humorous. Vicariously, we meet the workers at the salon and a variety of clientele seeking to fulfil different needs. It goes without saying that inaccuracies of language are an integral part of the narrative. A series of watercolours accompanies and illustrates the texts.
