Art as "a singular thought"

The complex and multifaceted artist absorbed the cultural humus of the 1970s although she has always treated it in a highly personal way, careful of her own expressive independence. The polyester sculptures from the early 1970s, the photographs, performances, books, and paintings all reveal, as a constant in her career, the interpenetration of experimental research and critical reflection. The denial of the abstract and idealistic concept of art finds in History and in Contemporaneity the meaning of art's own making. Central to her artistic expression is the need for a critical relationship to contemporaneity, explored in its most problematic and contradictory aspects.
