Mariken Wessels – TAKING OFF. HENRY MY NEIGHBOR
Art Paper Editions
Add to Cart
Taking Off is a real picture story of a failed marriage, sexual frustration and voyeurism. An extraordinary amount of photographs and cut-up collages comprise an archival vertigo of amateur nude art.
Through people she met on a journey through the United States, artist Mariken Wessels gained access to the studio and the entire archive of Henry, as well as full consent over its use. She started redacting the work and arranging it into an artist's book, in which the audience will be invited to a journey into Henry’s life and his vision of his former wife and muse Martha.
