Conceptual, performance and assemblage artist Eleanor Antin seems to have dedicated her career to the attempt to discover what she seems to declare is her missing "Self." She describes herself as a "post-conceptual artist".
In the effort to discover her missing self, she created a series of performance personas, including an evolution into a man that appeared to her to be very much like Anthony Van Dyke's portrait of Charles the First, King of England. This evolved into her "King of Solana Beach (California), also a bearded character she took into the streets to interact with passersby. Antin also uses the "Ballerina," "Nurse" and "Black Movie Star" as personas in attempts to discover or create a Self.
