Dorothy Iannone has developed her artistic practice in paintings, artists’ books, video installations, sculptures, and sound works. In her visual and writing oeuvre, she has created a particular relationship between text, image, audio, and sculptural objects, emphasising their narrative and fictional dimension. Iannone examines topics related to female sexuality, which has caused her work to become censored on several occasions. She refers to feelings and emotions, creating an erotic iconography largely inspired by non-Western imaginaries, where she passionately describes her intimate friendships and relationships with artists and lovers. For many years, she was both personally and artistically associated with Fluxus. Her transdisciplinary practice establishes a dialogue with the neo-avant-garde movements of the 1960s, 70s, and 80s.
M HKA is preparing one of the most extensive surveys of Dorothy Iannone's work, to be exhibited in 2023.
