Arriving soon, signed copies of Queen Ann. P.S. Belly Cut Off
the latest book from the Dutch interdisciplinary artist Mariken Wessels. As with her last publication, Elisabeth | I want to eat
, Wessels presents an ambiguous narrative, carefully constructed from a body of found material. In this case, we are presented with the life story and bizarre collages of Queen Ann, a middle-aged woman apparently obsessed with her weight and longing for her lost youth. The material is varied, ranging from snapshots, school portraits, collage and what appear to be film stills, while the extent of Wessels own alterations are left unclear. The result is a stunning, exquisitely told and richly nuanced narrative, balanced by just enough unresolved space for the viewer to play. Copies arriving soon, now available for preorder.
