Performance and installation artist Colette has been documenting her work since the mid-1970s in a series titled “Records from the Story of My Life,” twelve-inch square collages (sized like LPs) incorporating photographs embellished with paint and other materials. Colette assumed the persona of Justine & The Victorian Punks for this 1978 collage with an image connected to performances at the art space P.S.1, and in the window of the boutique FiorucciColette has been the subject of an online exhibition at Gallery 98.

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.
