Francesca Woodman

Works from the Sammlung Verbund

Published by D.A.P./Distributed Art Publishers, Inc.
Edited and with text by Gabriele Schor, Elisabeth Bronfen. Foreword and introduction by Gabriele Schor. Text by Betsy Berne, Johannes Binotto, Beate Söntgen, Abigail Solomon-Godeau.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Francesca Woodman</I>.This volume--the most comprehensive monograph published on Francesca Woodman to date--considers her enigmatic photography in the light of the tradition of the tableau vivant and also explores for the first time her poetic use of props (mirror, gloves, wallpaper, etc.) as well as her unusual staging of space. Featuring 80 photographs and 20 previously unpublished works from the collection Sammlung Verbund in Vienna, it is the first publication ever to reproduce all of Woodman’s photographs in their original sizes, authentically reconstructing her idiosyncratic technique of placing the image on the photographic paper. Woodman’s stark, black-and-white photographs explore an intense curiosity and ambivalence toward the feminine self, but her often playful, surreal and symbolic gestures also demonstrate her ability to incorporate elements of humor into her otherwise sober iconography. This volume unifies all of these themes in her work under the broad concept of tableau vivant, showing how Woodman radically reimagined that tradition. It also includes the first detailed and illustrated biography of her life.
Francesca Woodman (1958–1981) was born into an artistic family and began to develop her interest and skill in photography during her early teenage years. She produced a distinct and original body of work in under a decade. Woodman committed suicide in 1981 at the age of 22. In the years following her death, Woodman’s work has achieved widespread critical acclaim.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

NY Magazine

Erica Schwiegershausen

In the wake of her death, Woodman’s photographs — haunting black-and-white images, which examine her own body and ambivalence toward it — have received much critical acclaim. Yet a new exhibit, currently on display at Vienna’s Sammlung Verbund gallery, and corresponding book (out next month) argues against popular interpretations of Woodman’s images that foreshadow her premature demise. In an introductory essay, the critic Elisabeth Bronfen disputes Peggy Phelan’s suggestion that Woodman’s obsession with blurred renditions of her own figure are “understood as a way to rehearse her own death,” asserting instead: “By resolutely dedicating herself to the fragility of her own appearance as a photographic rendition, Woodman highlights the very inexorable inconsistency that ties the vitality of artistic work to the transience of life.”

Francesca Woodman: Works from the Sammlung Verbund

Francesca Woodman: Works from the Sammlung Verbund"Untitled," Providence Rhode Island (1976), is reproduced from Francesca Woodman: Works from the Sammlung Verbund, an exquisite exhibition catalog and the most comprehensive monograph yet published on Woodman to date. Essayist Elisabeth Bronfen writes, "The tableaux vivants Woodman repeatedly puts on display in her artistic practice… need not only be read as anticipating and rehearsing death. They can also be seen to celebrate a precarious recovery of aesthetic presence by capturing a scene in which the body is staged simultaneously as an image and as the producer of that image." continue to blog
