Les goddesses / Hemlock forest
This artist book is "two related projects, Les Goddesses (2011) and Hemlock Forest (2016), which each take form through text, photography, and film. Layering introspection and personal narratives with meditations on the lives and works of other writers, filmmakers, and artists—ranging from 18th-century feminist writer and activist Mary Wollstonecraft to Chantal Akerman, Karl Ove Knausgård, and Davey’s own five sisters—the artist explores such themes as compulsion, artistic production, family, and life and its passing."--From the publisher Dancing Foxes Press.; "This book is published on the occasion of the exhibition 'Hemlock Forest' (Bergen Kunsthall, October 28, 2016 - January 8, 2017), curated by Martin Clark and Steinar Sekkingstad"--From Colophon.; Text by Aveek Sen.; Includes bibliographical references.
