Carrie Mae Weems: Kitchen Table Series

Foreword by Sarah Elizabeth Lewis.

Carrie Mae Weems: Kitchen Table Series

“In book form, Kitchen Table is more intimate…. Unlike the experience of meandering through a museum, stepping back to appreciate the images and nearing the text panels to skim them, the pace of exploration is now in a person’s hands.” –Hilary Moss, New York Times

This publication is dedicated solely to the early and canonical body of work by American artist Carrie Mae Weems (born 1953). The 20 photographs and 14 text panels that make up Kitchen Table Series tell a story of one woman’s life, as conducted in the intimate setting of her kitchen. The kitchen, one of the primary spaces of domesticity and the traditional domain of women, frames her story, revealing to us her relationships—with lovers, children, friends—and her own sense of self, in her varying projections of strength, vulnerability, aloofness, tenderness and solitude.
As Weems describes it, this work of art depicts “the battle around the family ... monogamy ... and between the sexes. Weems herself is the protagonist of the series, though the woman she depicts is an archetype. Kitchen Table Series seeks to reposition and reimagine the possibility of women and the possibility of people of color, and has to do with, in the artist’s words, “unrequited love.”

Carrie Mae Weems: Kitchen Table Series, Woman Standing Alone

"Untitled (Woman Standing Alone)" is reproduced from Carrie Mae Weems: Kitchen Table Series, MW Editions' deluxe monograph presenting Weems' seminal 1990 photo and text series depicting the agonizing and inevitable arc of a relationship, alongside the growth of the protagonist's voice as a woman. "No really, she fussed, fussed all day long; he was worthless, not a man but a chump, couldn’t fight his way out of a wet paper bag, she fucked with him all day long, and all day long he quietly took it all in, and then he quietly exploded. Before she could collect her wit or make a dash for the door, he seized her and hung her upside-down out of their seven story apartment window and said, 'Talk shit now, goddamnit!!' One day he placed a match-box on her clothes. It was time to book." continue to blog
