Sherman Questions VI
1. Cindy Sherman Untitled #157, 1986
2. Madeleine Vionnet 1930s
Sherman's images of ugliness reach their climax with a 1986 character transformation. The woman is transformed into an antropomorphed hybrid, recalling motives of ancient mythology. Of course, this jinxed figure is posing in an historical archive piece by Madelaine Vionnet, a woman known for dressing puppets.
