Abstract :
Re-publication of Post-Partum Document (originally published 1983) to mark the occasion of bringing together the complete work for exhibition at the Generali Foundation in Vienna. Made during the 1970s, the project was conceived as an installation in six consecutive sections. Post-Partum Document explores aspects of the mother-child relationship, and engages themes concerning the mother's own emergence into sexuality, language and self-identity in a patriarchal world paralleling the 'other' experience of the same phenomena by her male child. This conceptual art project, largely comprised of mixed media, includes analyzed fecal stains and feeding charts, analyzed utterances and related speech events, analyzed markings and diary-perspective schema, transitional objects, classified speciments, and a prewriting alphabet. In all there are 135 small units. ;
