Losing (Her Meaning)
Oil on canvas
50 x 70 cm
This painting was a key work in the Waiting for Meaning exhibition of 1988.
The model floats face down, in dark green-blue water. It is a work not only about questioning representations of the female body, but also about the quest for a language that facilitates discussion of this issue.
The Artwork as Misunderstanding
There is a crisis regarding Representation.
They are looking for Meaning as if it was a thing.
As if it was a girl, required to take her panty off as if she would want to do so, as soon as the true interpreter comes along.
As if there was something to take off.
