AA Bronson Hotel Photos, 1995-2000
27,9 x 35,6 cm each, 5 parts (unframed)
40 x 50,8 x 3,1 cm ach, 5 parts (framed)
Series of five photographic self-portraits taken in hotel rooms while traveling, during the years following the death of Felix Partz and Jorge Zontal—AA Bronson's former collaborators and members of the artist group General Idea—from AIDS-related illness. During those years of mourning, Bronson didn't produce any art. However, this series of self-portraits echoes General Idea's Mirror Sequence from 1969, one of the group's early work: a series of black and white photographs of Bronson's reflection in circular convex mirrors.
