1998 was a big year for me: I had a
one-person exhibition at Gallery NAGA, Boston, followed by a
huge retrospective at the magnificent, newly expanded DeCordova
Museum and Sculpture Park in Lincoln, Massachusetts, USA, which
ran from September 26th, 1998 to January 3, 1999. I was also
included in 2 group shows of considerable importance in New York
Reviews of my work have been very positive;
indeed, quite overwhelming, and best of all, I am happy with
my figurative, life-sized images. These allow me to deal with
the issues of mortality, sexuality, identity, feminism/humanism,
socio-politics, psychoanalysis, and a new emphasis on aging.
If this sounds like too much, for me it is all integrated.
My installations include holograms;
they are holographic installations. They are technological only
because the medium of holography is technological.
The pencil is also technological.
Holography in the late 20th century?
I have always said that the art of this time will emanate from
the laboratory. It is happening.
In the 21st century - - WATCH OUT!
Harriet Casdin-Silver spoke
in Defining Traditions 1969 - 1996 and was presented with a lifetime
achievement award for her outstanding contribution to the field
of creative holography
