A catalogue for Bracha L. Ettinger’s solo exhibition And My Heart, Wound-Space Within Me. Eurydice – Medusa which took place at Arter – Sanat İçin Alan | Space for Art as part of the 14th Istanbul Biennial. The exhibition explored the themes of psychoanalysis, femininity, identity and history. Through 15 oil paintings (1992-2013), 75 notebooks(1984-2015), an audio lecture (2015) and installation (2015), Ettinger aimed to bring the viewer into her inner world and past experiences.
During the Biennial preview, Ettinger held a public seminar “reading” with Griselda Pollock. The artist book, which was especially conceived for the show, has images of Ettinger’s work and texts by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev (forward), Griselda Pollock (introduction), Andrew Benjamin, Nicolas Bourriaud, Christine Buci-Glucksmann, Ruth Kara-Kaniel, Tina Kinsella, Oded Wolkstein and the artist herself.
