1992 Cambridge Darkroom
This was the first time that I used photography in a show. It was also
the first use of texts and music of other artists to create an installation.
It was the beginning of my playing up the tactile qualities of photographs
and later of videotape. AND it was the first work that derived from
my walking and sleeping out.
44 doubled slides projected to create eleven foot high images of a giant
woman in man-made and natural landscapes, shown in a large darkened
space; extracts from 'The Expedition to the Baobab Tree' by Wilma Stockenstrom
trans. J.M. Coetzee  which could be read only while walking very
close to the walls of the space; and audiotape of the drumming sections
of 'Sarah is ninety years old' by Aarvo Part.
