Quote:
"[In Artist On Fire: The Work of Joyce Wieland] I made every attempt to situate Joyce [Wieland] as a heroic figure. For instance, the interviews with Joyce are very formal and part of the conscious design. [...] She is an ordinary woman in ordinary circumstances of a certain age, but the combination of these factors with the heroic setting turns the table on expectations."
-- Kay Armatage
