◄ Overview

Dorothy Iannone

Forever True

For an object with such evident contemporary relevance, Dorothy Iannone’s lamp has deep historical roots. It is based on a drawing made by the artist for her own vinyl album Ewig Grün [Forever True]. In this Feminist classic of self-possessed sexuality, Iannone sings a single verse of a German song over and over, while masturbating; the record ends in both a melodic and actual climax. The Statue of Liberty presented itself to her as an obvious template: “flowers and stars falling from the air, fireworks exploding in the sky, I suddenly realized I had painted a metaphor for the moment of orgasm, that fleeting moment where we are one with the true nature of our minds that moment of ecstatic unity which can also be called enlightenment.”
