4to. 111pp. Foreword by Patrick Hughes. One hundred b/w and color photographs. Marien uses collage and juxtaposition of elements and objcets to create surreal, ‘talking pictures.’ Erotic, startling, sometimes sexually explicit, they include scissors dangling from a nipple; a nude suckling a reproduction of the Venus de Milo; a woman holding a seashell, its opening painted bright red, over her vagina; the hole in a painter’s palette revealing a scene of cunnilingus; mirror play, and more. Marien’s work combines classic Surrealist gestures with uncanny moves of his own. This is the first English-language edition, published simultaneously in French as La Femme Entrouverte, and in Dutch as De Openstaande Vrouw. Boards in dust jacket.
