Im exploring the Selfportriat as vehicle for entering the unconscious so as to find the Images/themes, that drive the unconscious. Of particular importance to me since recently falling the victim to a robbery which left me unconscious on a street in South Africa. See my blogpost at: http://bettiecoetzee-lambrecht.blogspot.com
To my delight, one of my expirements, made a week after the assault, while "living the incident through dance" as advised by Dr Dawn Garisch's insightful book, Eloquent Body, was selected by the Artslant Showcase Team July 2012, as a Winner. Was the assault one of the Difficult Gifts, Dr Garisch refers to in one of her poems called Difficult Gifts?
