Colette Mannequin, Story of my Life, LP records, Beautiful Dreamer

For Colette the documentation of her temporary performances has become a fine art in itself.   Her most interesting and attractive mode of documentation is the ongoing series “Records from the Story of My Life.”  Each of these works is a twelve-inch square collages (sized like LPs) that incorporates photographs embellished with paint and other materials.  Colette first began working in this long-running format in 1978.

Colette: On the Streets and in the Clubs, 1972–1985

Colette worked without inhibition. Acting out an inner-world of fantasies she began making photographic self-portraits, creating soft fabric environments in which she was often a crucial living presence, and exhibiting self-referential hybrid works that combined sculpture, painting, and photography.
