“In this layered seven-color silkscreen print from conceptual artist Rosemarie Trockel, the artist entwines images from her own past with those of Parkett. Contrasting black and white images are set against a background of bright horizontal stripes, and the work takes its title from the James Joyce novel of the same name. Ever-shifting in her process, materials and approach to subject matter, Trockel’s work challenges notions of feminism, fine art and the relevance of the artist’s hand.” -Artspace
