Colette, Justine & The Victorian Punks: Records from the Story of My Life, Mixed Media, 1978

Justine & the Victorian Punks, 1978. Mixed media, 12 1/4 x 12 1/4 in.

A photograph of Colette’s 1978 performance at P.S. 1 was incorporated into a photocollage used later that year as the central image of a poster created in conjunction with Colette’s performance in the window of the boutique Fiorucci. This “Record” includes pieces of that poster, along with drips of blue paint.

Colette, Justine, Fiorucci Window

For Colette the documentation of her temporary performances has become a fine art in itself.   Her most interesting and attractive mode of documentation is the ongoing series “Records from the Story of My Life.”  Each of these works is a twelve-inch square collage (sized like an LP) that incorporates photographs embellished with paint and other materials.  Colette first began working in this long-running format in 1978.
