what was the right answer,1980


Installed in a hallway at Artist's Space that included many doorways to offices and bathrooms, this project played on the well-known linguistic and psychoanalytic notion that sexuality can be affected by something as mundane as the sign on a toilet door. Three-photograph groupings, behind glass and on small shelves, punctuated the walls of the hallway, showing a mother and child in different poses and clothing (male and female). The title is drawn from "Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man," inclining the project toward an examination of the Oedipal complex. Photographs on the shelves were of women wearing transluscent male and female masks.

Edition of 1. what was the right answer...is in the collection of: Sammlung Hoffmann, Berlin.
