Khoj International Workshop, India

In 1998, I was invited to participate in the Khoj International Workshop in Modinigar, India. During my residency, I created a series of palm leaf books from palm trees on the property. I collaged images of the Kama Sutra onto the cured leaves, pairing images with text from the Starr Report and relationship self help books.

The public was invited to a closing of the Workshop residency where artists displayed their work in installations. I used one of the beds to create a seductive atmosphere suiting the Kama Sutra.
