Sarah Vogwill’s recent prints tease a frenetic abstraction out of girlie magazine centerfolds. She has used as a starting point the iconic December 1953 Playboy magazine cover of Marilyn Monroe. But coupled with this modified portrait of the oft fetishized sex symbol, Vogwill has added an even more intimate portrait. Bound in a Playboy magazine sized softcover book are the FBI’s complete files on Monroe obtained thanks to the Freedom of Information Act. Signed and numbered.
