Abstract / Summary

In A Confusion of Marys Rupert Loydell and Sarah Cave explore, write back to and re-imagine the story of the Angel Gabriel appearing to Mary, in terms of sequential writing, re-versioning, accumulation, variation and ekphrasis. Many paintings, photographs, videos and sculptures depicting the annunciation were used as research and inspiration, including works by Fra Angelico, Andy Warhol, Francis Picabia, Paul Delvaux and Rene Magritte. The work is part of an ongoing exploration of this material and associated themes such as colour, contemporary art, spiritual/alien intervention and intrusion into the human realm, symbolism and the nature of belief and submission. Previous publications centred on these topics include Rupert Loydell's Dear Mary (Shearsman, 2017) and the collaborative works Joyful Mysteries #1-5 and Impossible Songs (Analogue Flashback, 2017).
