Lying Bodies explores how to survive with invisible, non-normative identities by focusing on literally `invisible' differences. The first half of the book attempts a theoretical account of the self in the field of vision, drawing on psychoanalytic theories of the formation of the self. In order for the survival of the self with a visual image that both enables and threatens it, the book proposes the strategy of `the lying body', which combines mimicry with equivocality. The second half of the book demonstrates possible forms of `the lying body' through an analysis of specific examples of cultural practices, including works by artists Cindy Sherman and Morimura Yasumasa, as well as the claim of invisible sexual differences by feminine-looking lesbians.
