The German Annegret Soltau has a different approach to the art of collage. Her work marks a fundamental reference point in the feminist art of the 1970s and 1980s. Photomontages of her own body and face sewn over or collaged with black thread are the most well-known works of this amazing artist.
My most important aim is to include bodily processes in my work and to use myself as a model – because I can go the furthest with myself
Her work is interesting in that fact that she chooses what information about herself that she wants to reveal and leaves out the other parts by sewing itto a self portrait. I am going to use this too in the new self-portait series I am starting in September. I will be playing a female alter ego, but I will incorporate stories of my own life.
