Two Interconnected Houses

(2010)

Slide-projection with 80 / 35mm slides
Hammer Museum, Los Angeles

MM: These two houses are interconnected by two tunnels and now form one house.
In one of the rooms I wrote my name on the wall, and I titled this drawing: “On the Various Contrivances by Which a Self­ Portrait Is Fertil­ized by Its Owner.” This title is based on Charles Darwin’s 1862 book On the Various Contrivances by Which British and Foreign Orchids Are Fertilised by Insects, and On the Good Effects of Intercrossing.
