About this title


This text argues that Mary Kelly's combination of texts with images and found objects has been pivotal, not only to the development of Conceptual Art, but also to 20th-century feminism. Kelly often deploys prevailing literary or scientific genres, ranging from romantic fiction to types of psychoanalytical and medical diagnosis which define women as other, and overturns them with her own narratives and images.
