Item description for Ana Torfs: Du Mentir-Faux by Dirk Lauwaert & Ana Torfs...

When we think of Joan of Arc we might think of an androgynous, proto-feminist heroine, Dreyer's and Bresson's marvelous films, the terror of interrogation, a tormented body fraught with symbolism...But what happens when an artist with all of this in the back of her mind takes a fresh look at the historical sources? What images do they conjure up? For the exhibition "Du Mentir-Faux"--of which this book is a part--explores Belgian artist Ana Torfs' profound engagement with this historical, mythical, and literary figure. The book contains text and photography by Torfs, including her reading of the trail transcripts of 1431 and 1456, along with an essay by film and photography critic Dirk Lauwaert. "Du Mentir-Faux" is another landmark work by this up-and-coming artist, whose previous works include the video "Condition"(1995), the film"Zyklus von Kleinigkeiten"(1998), and the book"Beethoven's Nephew"(1999).
