“I’m Not Your Cupcake” is Kim Kardashian’s first foray into the world of conceptual art. Her gallery effectively resurrects and revitalizes the mise en abyme technique, which she utilizes intelligently to not only comment on the infinite reproduction of her image, but also on the boundless recursion happening in our image obsessed culture, where mirroring occurs at such an extreme rate that meaning and context have been rendered unstable.
