Cavegirl Monologue is Benjamin’s most substantial collection to date and the works range from the most minuscule of talismans to larger than life representations of female creatures. Much of the art in this collection is new and unreleased, but it also contains a selection from her artist’s books and foldout zines, including the recent Romantic Story collection that was wildly popular and is now out of print. It also contains paintings from her 2017 debut solo exhibition at Dress Shop in Brooklyn. The images compiled here are intended to be displayed together, all falling under the umbrella of her most recent work but also providing an integral passage in the cavegirl’s monologue.
The book contains a foreword by Reba Maybury of Wet Satin Press.
Softcover, perfect-bound, 128 pages, 8.5 inches x 11 inches, Sacred Bones, 2018.
