Carolee Schneemann in THEM at Schinkel Pavillon, Berlin

June 13, 2015

Hales Gallery is pleased to announce Carolee Schneemann's participation in group show THEM at the Schinkel Pavillon in Berlin.

 

The exhibition THEM, curated by Nina Pohl, revolves around questions of the self, encompassing the gaze inward and outward, and of representation and self-definition. The central reference point of the exhibition is the work of Polish artist Alina Szapocznikow (1926-1973), which has gained international recognition in recent years. Szapocznikow's works partake in a dialogue with six artists, exclusively female positions including Schneemann, which deal - each one specifically in relation to their generation - with the definition and construction of the body, with gender, with social positioning, and even the prosthetic-ness of the body in the digital era. Schneemann's film Meat Joy (1964) in this exhibition reflects discourse around the body, sexuality and gender in an erotic ritual, in which flesh becomes material and the body becomes the medium.
