Description

She had a lot of siblings she told me, so she wouldn’t get any pretty clothes until she had a likely match—but since she didn’t have anything pretty to wear, she couldn’t get a match. She was trapped in a vicious circle, doomed to spend her blooming years in wistful longing: no young woman, no matter how clever, could break her way out of a dress like that.

Unintended Experience is composed of a collection of diary entries previously published by the artist on her Facebook page, relating to her aesthetic, intellectual and sentimental experiences as an undercover transgender masseuse in an Asian parlour in Amsterdam. A series of watercolours accompanies the texts. Inaccuracies of language are an integral part of the narrative.

Softcover with dust jacket, perfect-bound, b&w and colour
