all images by Luís Branco
You have been in my dreams Claude Cahun …
I have been (obsessively) editing the images that I made with Luís Branco in the Netherlands in May. My relationship to you Claude, your oeuvre, and your Heroines text is embedded and embodied in this work. The pillow “remake,” a petulant princess, kitchen gloves, pearls on the eyes, Androgyne, a Dutch study, cigarettes in the garden. I have been writing my own text/narrative for this project. I am making an artists book. The book is a new form for me – but very Cahunian (which I understand is now an art historical term.) The following images have not been selected for the book, but they give an idea of the flavor of the performance…
Luís Branco pushed me hard with this work, this has been a whole new level of collaboration for us. Curator and writer Cydney Payton, has been with me every step of the way – looking at images and text. Joseph Logan, my step-son and talented book designer, has agreed to help me make the book. Cydney and I have narrowed it down to 21 images (and I won’t be showing these images until they are either in the book form or an exhibit.) We have refined and edited my text. I am very excited!! I am also very grateful for the opportunity to make this work in Holland at the Obras Art Residency in Renkum – it was the perfect situation!!
