  • Reflection Notes

“This was a centrepiece of the ‘In Good Company (Horsepower)’ exhibition at mistral. In fact, it was the origin point of the exhibition’s title. The photo is a digitized slide, and it was originally taken in 2000 by Robin when he and Sands met Carolee in Denmark for the opening of an exhibition on the body in art. They are standing in the gallery on Feminist art where Carolee’s work was featured. Behind them are works by Ana Mendieta, Hannah Wilke and Orlan. Sands always says he would have liked to have had a photo of Carolee and Hannah together (they were friends), but Carolee never managed to find one for him. This was the first time that Carolee and Robin had met, so the photo is a commemoration of many things.” – MH.
