'The Splendour of Myself IV' is an excellent example of how the artist works. She began working on self-portraits as a way of asserting her own identity after she stopped working with Przemysław Kwiek. For many of these works, which are made up of hundreds of photos, she used her 'Archive of Gestures' – around 700 photos showing a male model in various physical poses – which she put together between 1987 and 1991.
