DOROTHY IANNONE: YOU WHO READ ME WITH PASSION NOW MUST FOREVER BE MY FRIENDS. Ed. by Lisa Pearson and Trinie Dalton. Siglio Press, Los Angeles, 2014. Distributed by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 320 pp. with 248 ills. (87 col.). 23 x 19 cm. ISBN 9781938221071 In English.
Publisher's description: For over five decades, Dorothy Iannone has been making exuberantly sexual and joyfully transgressive image-text works. Karen Rosenberg wrote of her in The New York Times: "High priestess, matriarch, sex goddess: the self-taught American artist Dorothy Iannone has been called all these things and more. Since the early 1960s she has been making paintings, sculptures and artist's books that advocate 'ecstatic unity,' most often achieved through lovemaking." Beginning with the famous "An Icelandic Saga," in which Iannone narrates her journey to Iceland (where she meets Dieter Roth and leaves her husband to live with him), this singular volume traces Iannone's search for "ecstatic unity" from its carnal beginnings in her relationships with Roth and other men into its spiritual incarnation as she becomes a practicing Buddhist. Reproducing several previously unpublished or long-out-of-print works in their entirety (such as Danger in Dusseldorf, The Whip, An Explosive Interlude), as well as longer excerpts from rarely-seen works like A Cookbook and Berlin Beauties, this volume gives readers the chance to read her work with sustained attention, and enjoy the sophistication of the stories she tells and the visual-textual embellishments that make them so irresistible.
