A catalogue for Bracha L. Ettinger’s solo exhibition, And My Heart, Wound-Space Within Me. Eurydice – Medusa which took place at Arter – Sanat İçin Alan | Space for Art as part of the 14th Istanbul Biennial. The exhibition explored the themes of psychoanalysis, femininity, identity and history. Through 15 oil paintings (1992–2013), 75 notebooks (1984–2015), an audio lecture (2015) and installation (2015), Ettinger aimed to bring the viewer into her inner world and past experiences.
During the Biennial preview, Ettinger held a public seminar “reading” with Griselda Pollock. This artist's book, which was especially conceived for the show, has images of Ettinger’s work and texts by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev (forward), Griselda Pollock (introduction), Andrew Benjamin, Nicolas Bourriaud, Christine Buci-Glucksmann, Ruth Kara-Kaniel, Tina Kinsella, Oded Wolkstein and the artist herself.
