Riassunto: Artist and writer Robert Seydel (1960-2011) often used personas and fictional constructs in a vast body of work that incorporated collage, drawing, photography and writing. His primary alter ego Ruth Greisman--banker by day, artist by night, friend of Marcel Duchamp and Joseph Cornell--lived in Queens, caring for her shell-shocked brother, a veteran of WWI. This book collects Ruth's "journal pages," typed on paper purloined from old photo albums and adorned with drawings, narrating Ruth's inner life and the tenuous creation of self. She says, "I'll invent who I am, against what is. My time and name: a Queens of the mind." All of Ruth's works--collages, journal pages and drawings--were purportedly discovered buried in boxes of miscellanea in the Joseph Cornell Study Center at the Smithsonian's Archives of American Art and in the family garage. A definitive selection will be exhibited at the Neilson Library, Smith College.
