The Place of Prepositions

‘The Place of Prepositions’, written in collaboration with artist Pamela Wells, explores the theme of angels in relation to Michel Serres’ suggestion that prepositions are angelic. The essay examines Wells’ work through a dialogue between French feminist theory and the practice of radical feminist artists in the US operating in the same historical period.
