Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art: Feminist Art Base: Mira Schor

Dress Book, "Angel"

Dress Book, "Angel"

Mira Schor. Dress Book, "Angel", 1977.

Description:
A dress shape is abstracted into a wasp-waisted double V shape, made of delicate, translucent rice paper covered with my handwriting. It is person-sized and a kind of active bas relief: you can turn the pages and try to read the woman.

Medium:
Mixed Media
