A velvet rose, persistent and unique, dedicated to one of the leading artist of Dadaism: a homage to Marcel Duchamp and to his “double” Rrose Selavy. With Rrose Selavy, Maria Candida interprets the “double” of Marcel Duchamp, and his jeux des mots Rrose Selavy which sounds in French like “eros, c’est la vie”, or “arroser la vie”, to make a toast to life.
Maria Candida pays tribute to Duchamp, making a toast to life with her velvety, soft, fresh, just harvested Rrose Selavy. The name Selavy emerged in 1921 in a series of photographs by Man Ray of Duchamp dressed as a woman. Through the 1920s, Man Ray and Duchamp collaborated on more photos of Selavy. Duchamp later used the name as the byline on written material and signed several creations with it.
