  • Title:
    Eye Body: 36 Transformative Actions 1963
  • Artist:
    Carolee Schneemann
  • Year:
    n/a
  • Description:
    Paint, glue, fur, feathers, garden snakes, glass, plastic with the studio installation "Big Boards". Photographs by Icelandic artist Erró, on 35 mm black and white film. Schneemann's "Action for Camera" in which she merged her own body with the environment of her painting/constructions... "I wanted my actual body to be combined with the work as an integral material-- a further dimension of the construction... I am both image maker and image. The body may remain erotic, sexual, desired, desiring, but it is as well votive: marked, written over in a text of stroke and gesture discovered by my creative female will." - CS
