In her tower (2014)
Kaufman views this piece as a psychological journey through her own female fictions and truths, through angst, tenderness, glamour and hysteria, desire and power. These are the demons and angels that she tussles with, all for some absent witness, some silent judge. She sees no end in sight, but relishes the game.
