Jack Hanley Gallery, 14 Dec. 2007 – 19 Jan. 2008. Glossy two-sided poster, 27.9 by 43.2 cm. Light handling creases with a faint drip mark near the lower left corner. Signed by Vaucher in silver paint marker. Gee Vaucher (1945 – ) is best known for her collage and photo- and video-montage work in the anarchist collective and band Crass, including her distinctive collage and painted record sleeves, like the “Stations of the Crass” cover which unfolded into a poster and adorned the walls of many a punk home. However, Gee has spent five decades, along with her collaborative partner Penny Rimbaud, creating politically-charged art. She has worked as a political illustrator for the New York Times and New York magazine, and her image of the Statue of Liberty, titled “Oh America,” was used on the cover of the UK Daily Mail after the election of Donald Trump, with the headline “What have they done?” This poster, for Vaucher’s first retrospective exhibit, features “Oh America” on the front, with Rimbaud’s matching text on the verso. “Oh, America, cries she with silent lips, give me the ghosts of the people who you destroyed and whose Nation you stole, that I might learn their ancient wisdom and be shone a pathway to solace. Give me the spirits of those who across dark seas you shipped here in shackles, that the bondage of history might be destroyed and they reunited with their forefathers…”
