Abstract (English)

Catalogue to accompany Martin’s exhibition of paintings, drawings and prints which were inspired by Gathie Falk’s cupboard pieces. Conley situates the artist’s images of nude female torsos within the theoretical contexts of Freudian psychoanalysis and “écriture feminine.” The author also draws attention to the importance of feminine libidinal pleasure by comparing the play of meaning in Martin’s work with H. Cixous’ notion of “writing the body.” Issues of representation, sexuality, eroticism and fetishism are considered in relation to the following psychoanalytic concepts: repression, the uncanny and the Real. Includes list of works. Biographical notes. 20 bibl. ref.
