Ida Applebroog: Mercy Hospital

Text by Jo Applin.

Drawing above, made at Mercy Hospital in 1969, is reproduced from 'Ida Applebroog: Mercy Hospital.'In 2009 Ida Applebroog’s (born 1929) assistants found a box marked “Mercy Hospital.” Inside was a series of drawings the artist made nearly 50 years ago, during a period of institutionalization after suffering a debilitating breakdown in San Diego in 1969. During this tumultuous period, Applebroog, by her own account, “withdrew from the world entirely, for a period hardly able to speak at all.” Instead she turned to drawing, producing works in graphite, India ink and watercolors, at times accompanied by text from authors such as Kafka and Freud.
The drawings oscillate between the figurative and the abstract, laying bare the female form and calling to mind art-historical precedents informed by psychopathology, particularly works produced in early and mid-20th-century France by the likes of Wols.
The publication of Mercy Hospital, with a text by Jo Applin, is the first time that Applebroog’s work from this period has been documented in full.

Ida Applebroog: Mercy Hospital

What a book! Gorgeous reproductions; paper changes; linen binding; collage works using texts by Kafka and Freud; The Yellow Wall-PaperIda Applebroog: Mercy Hospital—published to accompany an acclaimed 2016 exhibition at ICA Miami, which has traveled to New York and opens tonight at Karma—collects the dark, often scary and psychedelic-seeming drawings that Applebroog made while institutionalized at Mercy Hospital in 1969, post-nervous breakdown. Recently rediscovered by the artist's assistants in a box that hadn't been opened for 50 years, the drawings "allowed Applebroog to draw herself back to life, back to herself, leading from catastrophic breakdown to a creative, personal and political breakthrough," in the words of essayist Jo Applin. continue to blog
