These four works on paper were part of the 2003 series "Integrating Sex Into Everyday Life," in which the artist assiduously recorded her daily activities-- ranging from meals eaten to sexual acts-- with maps, lists, and graphite drawings. The title of the exhibition refers to the Phelps's self-declared discovery, at the age of 32, of her own sexuality and sexual orientation. When these works were exhibited at the LFL Gallery, the artist and her girlfriend ate, drank, and passed time at a table in the gallery space, imitating the domestic life that Phelps had documented in her art.
