Derrida Queen Mother
This jigsaw-cum-sculpture is part of the phenomena of our office in the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies at the University of Leeds. I'm not sure who placed the cut out of Jacques Derrida's face over the Queen Mother but it's a work of genius. Following a google search on the terms: derrida, queen mother, I was surprised at how many times the two names come up in scholarly works, including: Ashley Thompson's 'Post-cosmopolitical Theories: Sexual Difference, Vernacularisation and Art after Angkor' (2011) and Gyatri Spivak's 'Love Me, Love My Ombre, Elle' (1984).
