This series is an obliquely narrative set of twenty sequential intaglio prints, presented here as a slideshow with audio performance by author Sheila Heti; Minmei Madelynne Pryor Went into the Dryer is a coming-of-age story based on the familiar fantasy premise of finding the spectacular within the mundane.
Mixing a wide range of influences, from T'ang Dynasty sculpture, 1980's anime and Alice in Wonderland straight on through to the works of trend-setting photographer and sexual provocateur Terry Richardson.
The series aims to create a highly idiosyncratic yet recognizable world that serves as a theater for the title character to learn to keep her secrets to herself by exploring the relationships between identity construction, fantasy and privacy. It also has vomit, butterflies, extensive masturbation, and a large, dead dog.
