Lot Essay

"Obviously [it] is not possible to tie Trockels work to theoretical writings. But in many works she seeks indeed to define womans place in Western society opposing the models that reduce her to a being that finds pleasure only in passivity, and fulfillment in maturity. Trockel juxtaposes and mixes metaphorical references to both sexes, as much to denounce exclusion and sectarianism as to expose the contradictions that are the cause of this."
V. Bacchetta, "Provocation and Poetic Enigma", in Parkett, no. 32, 1992, p. 44.
