I Begin to Know You
US 1992

Through poetic devices, „I Begin to Know You“ weaves together ready-made images of women at work and in the domestic arena as an examination of women’s power and place in the world. I am interested in the ways meaning can be re-contextualized by tapping into a tradition of appropriation that takes possession of the global culture’s image bank.
