For this project I considered Jacques Lacan’s ownership of Gustave Courbet’s L'Origine du monde (1866). The silk-print is based a re-construction of a work by André Masson that was commissioned by Jacques Lacan. Masson’s work was used to cover Courbet’s work, to both conceal and reference the painting. The silk was given to my mother as a gift and worn to the opening of the exhibition, Covers.. My aim in this work was to uncover and re-cover the feminine subject at the centre the event.
