“My identity was stolen by a San Francisco-based woman named Erin Hart in 2011. Dear Erin Hart, is a body of work made in response to crimes Erin Hart committed using my name and identity. In an effort to piece together my transgressor’s crime spree, I documented relevant places, interviewed witnesses, hired a private investigator, and even photographed Erin Hart being released from jail. Through photography, video, and other forms of documentation, I make an attempt at understanding this woman and the course of events that brought their lives together.”

‘The now grizzled and bearded artist lives a contented Buddhist existence in Poughkeepsie. “A lot of the Factory superstars held a grudge against Andy Warhol for a long time,” says Karolinski. “Billy is one of the few people to come out of it who, to this day, is grateful towards Warhol—to that time and what it taught him.”’
