Andrea Modica, Treadwell, New York, 1987

Joseph Cornell, Untitled, no date

Yasumasa Morimura, An Inner Dialogue with Frida Kahlo (Collar of Thorns), 2001

Carolee Schneemann, Infinity Kisses, 1981-1987. Click image for LARGER view.

Nicholas Nixon, Kinnaird Street, Cambridge, 1981

Peter Fischli and David Weiss, Büsi (Kitty), 2001, video installation (still)
