The List Portfolio (Ugly Duckling, Homophonia, Liszt, Liste/List)

Kay Rosen The List Portfolio (Ugly Duckling, Homophonia, Liszt, Liste/List) 1990 Set of four screenprints

Image/paper size: 30 1/8 x 22 1/2 inches each (76.5 x 57.2 cm each)

1) Ugly Duckling – a found list of names selected from the S section of the Gary, Indiana telephone book.  The names are all quite ungraceful sounding, until the 27th one, Swan.

2) List/Liste – a list of French and English words.  Liste, the French words, look like English words.  The second part, List, is the English translation of the French Liste, which of course also look like English words.

3) Liszt – a list of all of Franz Liszt’s works

4) Homophonia – a list of words identified by the artist that each contain a pair of identical looking and sounding letters, homophonic in other words.  Just one letter away from homophobia, Homophonia is a little verbal metaphor for the larger society and the importance of like components to structure and meaning.
