about this work

The avant-garde writer Kathy Acker died in November 1997. During the summer of 1999, Kaucyila Brooke made a photographic study of her clothes. The archive of 154 photographs does not represent the complete wardrobe of Acker's T-shirts, shoes, lingerie, and stockings, but a selection she made with the assistance of the writer Matias Viegener, a close personal friend of Acker's and the executor of her estate.
