Artist Statement:


    The Angel Cycle (1985) has as its starting point a medical photograph of a hermaphrodite that we associate with the concept of the Angel. It includes more than twenty works at present: multimedia performances and installations, photo-sculptures, sound pieces, radio broadcasts, artist’s books, computer animations, video tapes. The present work relates the “Angel” photograph to archival footage from World War II. It is an anti-war manifesto, and an elegy. As a stranger, the “Angel” figure acquires the ambiguous status of observer, witness, victim and judge.
