Colette, arrested, NYCPD

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.  This particular work incorporates a photograph from 1973.  Exactly when the collage was made is uncertain.
