Impersonating Mao is concerned with uncovering the alternate life of Zhang, an impersonator who assumes the appearance and bearing of Mao Zedong, founder of the People’s Republic of China. Captivated by his quest for self-escapism and his embodiment of one of China’s most iconic historical figures, Daoust’s portraits extract an activity that goes beyond parody to reveal the impersonators desire to flee reality and pay personal homage to a by gone era.
