Too "glam" (I mean that it fits perfectly in glossy paper mags) for me in most of her pictures, in these ones, she escapes this cul-de-sac and opens on something more visceral.

You'll understand what it's all about readning this statement: "MAENADS In Ancient Greek Mythology, the “Maenads”(Greek: μαινάδες, mainádes) were nymphs, the female companions and followers of the god Dionysus, their name literally translates as “raving ones.

Cosey Fanni Tutti (born english in 1951) is best known as the Cosey from Chris and Cosey (from 1981 to this day), but also as a member of Throbbing Gristle (between 1975 and 1981 and again in 2004) and, to a lesser extent, as the female companion of Genesis P. Orridge in their performances inspired by the Flux movement called COUM Transmission (between 1974 and 76). Here it's a series shot for her album called Time To Tell that I chose to post. I added some pictures from her COUM performances but we are unfortunately short of iconography about her on the web. You may want to explore more deeply this prolific personality so you should consult her site here. Below some tracks from this album.
