Helen Chadwick

Enfleshings (New Images Book)
by Marina Warner
Publisher's Description
Enfleshings begins with a series of photo-sculptures following Chadwick's progress from the incubator to adulthood. In her largest enterprise, Of Mutability, the artist has suspended her own image in a sea of organic forms and decay in which she emphasizes the sensuality of her flesh. In another series--of light projections--she places herself close to the flesh of her mother, and against the backdrop of the State. Most recently, in her Viral Landscapes, she passes through the surface of her body to reach her own cellular structure. Helen Chadwick's commentaries offer the intimate voice of the artist in dialogue with her own reflection.
