Monet je umrl pri 51 letih zaradi komplikacij povezanih s sifilisom, ki je bil takrat smrtna bolezen. So Tragedy of Venus would seem to be about duality, in a number of ways. Firstly, there is the notion of the goddess and the mere mortal, Marlyin Monroe was a woman, not a Venus or a sex symbol. She was only that in the eyes of the others. At times in the book, the dichotomy seems almost non-existent, as when the pose of the figures is strikingly similar, but mostly it is about the vast difference between the two, separated by the enourmous gulf of celebrity where the media deifies the anointed.
In Monroe's case the goddess destroyed the woman within. She scanned the original and had it reprinted with a new cover featuring herself. Over the cover picture, and on all the other photographs, she has stamped the word 'whore' - in red, naturally. This loaded word adds a new layer of meaning to the original Tragedy. It also represents, she says, a reclaiming of the word 'whore' for feminism, in much the same way that 'slut' has been reappropriated by some feminists.
This might seem a relatively simple reworking of a Tragedy of Venus, but in effect is deeply subversive, disturbing and thought-provoking, as a good artist's book should be.
