FRAC de Bretagne, St-Briac-sur-Mer

40 women artists respond / correspond with a work by the early 20th century sculptor Armel Beaufils
In this exhibition curated by Sharon Kivland, each response is exhibited alongside the artwork
The form of response/correspondence is constrained only by the A3 size and two-dimensional nature of the wall panel. In the catalogue it is paired as a double-page with a photograph of the work to which it refers.
Clay woman (or the pleasure of wetting a bit more then one’s toe)
I responded with a couple of self portraits I had taken a few months earlier while bathing in clay mud in central Otago in New Zealand South Island. In the first one I uncannily adopts a similar bathing pose to the one portrayed by the clay figure in the image I was sent, though less tentatively as confirmed by the second image and the title.
