Dorothy Iannone: A Cookbook

Edited by Clément Dirié.

Dorothy Iannone: A Cookbook

A facsimile of artist Dorothy Iannone's notorious, emotionally and sexually charged 1969 recipe book

Since the 1960s, Dorothy Iannone (born 1933) has aimed at representing ecstatic love, “the union of gender, feeling and pleasure.” Today her oeuvre, encompassing paintings, drawings, collages, videos, sculptures, objects and artist’s books, is widely recognized as one of the most provocative and fruitful bodies of work in recent decades for its liberalization of female sexuality, and political and feminist issues.

Created in 1969, when she was living with Swiss artist Dieter Roth, the Cookbook is a perfect example of how Iannone mixes daily life, creativity and thought, culminating in her vision of cooking as an outlet for both eroticism and introspection. A real book of recipes full of visual delights, the Cookbook contains densely decorated pages with patterned designs, packed text and vibrant colors. Personal sentences are interspersed among the lists of ingredients, revealing the exultations and tribulations of her life between the lines of recipes. Filled with wit, wordplay and idiosyncratic thoughts—”At least one can turn pain to color” accompanies the recipe for gazpacho; “Dorothy’s spirit is like this: green and yellow,” is written next to the ingredients for lentil soup—the Cookbook constitutes a self-portrait of the artist as a cook and a lover. This publication is a facsimile of the 1969 original , now published with a dust jacket specially designed by the artist.

Madeleine Morley

In A Cookbook, internal musings on love and daily life mix together, framing the activity of cooking as a space for both eroticism and personal introspection.

Brooklyn Rail

Shelby Shaw

A Cookbook merges an affinity for pleasurable cooking with the autobiography of a woman in love, heartache, and absolute creative flourishing, uncensored on the page.

At last, Dorothy Iannone's suggestive and confessional—yet totally legit—1969 cookbook is available in this facsimile edition

At last, Dorothy Iannone's suggestive and confessional—yet totally legit—1969 cookbook is available in this facsimile edition

Featured spread is reproduced from Dorothy Iannone: A Cookbook, a facsimile of the artist's legendary 1969 hand-written recipe book, compiled while she was living, and fighting, with her equally tempestuous lover, Dieter Roth—to whom the book is dedicated. "Those years were among the most prolific work periods of my life," the artist writes. "In my atelier, I worked on the Cookbook on a drawing table, and when I had had enough of that, I resumed painting one of my large canvases, now referred to as the Eros series, which was placed against the wall behind me. While I painted, I played my favorite LP records. Cigarettes and vodka, music and song, accompanied my journey through the nights in my atelier. And now, reading the comments with which each page of the Cookbook is adorned, I realize that nothing less than love could have prompted the transforming of an accumulation of recipes into a work of art." continue to blog

Love, pain, food, art and longing in Dorothy Iannone's 1969 Cookbook

Love, pain, food, art and longing in Dorothy Iannone's 1969 Cookbook

"Sometimes I hate you so much that I must suppose I really hate you," Dorothy Iannone wrote in one of the opening spreads of her hand-written 1969 Cookbook dedicated to then-lover, Dieter Roth. "But that's only when you hurt me and just from my midget point of view. When I look at you full height I find you admirable and loveable and sort of godlike (I'm an old Catholic and have studied literature so I've got an idea what he's like—for one thing I know God is a man). Is this true? Anyway what I wanted to say the whole time is that I never would have started this recipe book if I didn't have the pleasure of cooking for you here and there. That's true." On the facing page, solid recipes for gazpacho, lentil soup and baked trout meuniere are surrounded by additional commentary, including: "I don't like to be sad. Half the time I am." "This is my ass mentally. Black + blue." "Only pain or pleasure can make art. Some people say longing too. Others say only men." And: "Dorothy's spirit is like this: green and yellow. No red?"
