Intra-Venus Tapes (detail), 1990-1993

Description


The Feldman Gallery will premier the IntraVenus Tapes, a video installation of sixteen monitors revealing the last two-and-a-half years of Hannah Wilke’s life, along with monotypes, watercolors, and photographs from 1987 to 1993. Wilke, who died in 1993 of lymphoma, recorded all aspects of her life in the presence of her illness, compiling more than 30 hours of tape. Almost from the beginning, she thought of these tapes, shot by herself, her husband Donald Goddard, and others, as a video installation, and she developed specific ideas about how it should be realized. Completed in 2007, fourteen years after her death at 52, this is Hannah Wilke’s last, and most personal work, at a time when her influence as a pioneering Conceptualist and early feminist continues to grow.
