Following her pursuit of a radical practice based on psychoanalytical theories, LA-based Mary Kelly has become one of the most influential conceptual artists; her epic Post-Partum Document, 1973-79, is one of the movement's seminal artworks. Here, she discusses psychoanalysis, the development of Feminism, primal political scenes and non-monumental memorials.
'For me, Freudian psychoanalysis, and Lacan's reading of it, in particular, is more relevant. Its linguistic emphasis allows you to deal with the psychic structure of difference in ways that address sexuality in relation to other issues such as race and class. As Maud Mannoni says, "The specifically human environment is neither biological, nor social, but linguistic." That was my mantra for Post-Partum Document.'
