“Josefowitz used painting to give body to those with more unsung existences, turning them into new heroes. The representation of these other bodies—female, non-human and black—allowed her to treat the essential themes that run throughout her work: marginality, power play, and the violence that goes with it. She also took pains, in the footsteps of an artist like Francis Bacon, to present bodies that are sick, deformed, giving birth or eating.”—Rebecca Lamarche-Vadel The richly illustrated volume offers the occasion to discover a singular yet little-known body of work on the borders of the art world. The practice of the late American-born, Swiss-based artist Cathy Josefowitz (1956–2014), constructed through painting, dance, drawing, and music, focused on a research into the figure of Other, their body, feelings, spirituality, suffering, and ecstasy—resonating with current discourses around a return to figuration; otherness; gender and the body.
