Abstract:
"In creating pink story: sinistral/dextral, we are bringing together two seemingly contradictory representations of a woman's life. Pink story: dextral is an artificially constructed narrative of a stereotypical woman's life. Paint chips offer the promise of covering flaws, and the paint surface creates a fac╠žade. In contrast to this external perspective, Pink story: sinistral presents an internalized story; constructed of photographs that represent spaces metaphoric of key stages in a woman's life. The use of the tile format in both volumes links the pieces together formally, and the visual narratives become mosaics. The result is two volumes that are like mirror images, reflecting each other, and offering to the viewer a paradoxi[c]al reality."--Authors' web page.
