The Unknown Heroine is a “story book” installation comprised of text and performative photographs made by conceptual artist Sherry Wiggins in collaboration with Portuguese photographer Luís Filipe Branco. The performative images are based on Wiggins’ interaction with French photographer and writer Claude Cahun’s essay “THE ESSENTIAL WIFE or the the Unknown Princess.” This essay was first published in 1925 in Claude Cahun’s feminist text titled Heroines. Wiggins acts out the story of the Wife and the Princess within the various rooms and gardens of a beautiful house. Wiggins has written her own text or narrative to go with the images. Wiggins has published an artists’ book that documents this project. The book includes the essay by Claude Cahun as well as an essay by curator and writer Cydney Payton.
