This book is a 50-year retrospective of the sculpture of Linda Mary Montano, a pioneer feminist performance artist who explores and dissolves the boundaries between art and life. Montano's sculpture covers traditional materials such as wood, stone, copper, bronze, and assemblage. Her focus on chickens as a metaphor for freedom and mystical flight to the divine provides humor and relief from conventional history of sculpture. All the three dimensional sculptures and related two-dimensional works in this book are a prelude to Montano's current performances of autobiography as art. Her vision of herself via the Mother Mary Doll is a rehearsal for seeing her own self and body as sculpture.
