JO SPENCE: THE FINAL PROJECT. Ed. by Louisa Lee. Ridinghouse, London, 2013. Published in association with The Jo Spence Memorial Archive, London. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 96 pp. with 66 ills. (52 col.). 24 x 22 cm. ISBN 9781905464814 In English.
Publisher's description: Jo Spence (1934-1992) disliked the term "artist," preferring instead to call herself a "cultural sniper, capable of appearing anywhere, in any guise." Indeed, her haunting photographic works feel as much like feminist critique and personal documentary as works of art. This, the long-delayed publication of her last body of work, explores the acute sense of unreality the artist felt following her second cancer diagnosis. Returning to previously explored territories of magical realism and motifs from other cultures, she created a hybrid grouping of works entitled PhotoFantasy, which combines a mixture of allegorical props and photomontage effects over her self-portraits. This publication presents a compilation of this work, alongside unpublished writings and notes by the artist and texts by Terry Dennett, Philomena Epps, Clarissa Jacob and Amy Tobin.
