Maria Beatty

Imaging Her Erotics: Carolee Schneemann (1993) VHS NTSC, color, 5.00 min

Keywords: Body

The result of year's collaboration between Beatty and Schneemann. Beatty's original video sequences intertwine with Schneemann's own vocabulary and visual style, creating a cumulative history from Schneemann's recurrent themes and symbols. Schneemann's command of painting, sculpture, performance and video art, as channels of self-alteration and transgression, provide a provocative look at feminist art history and depictions of sexuality. Her works through the past three decades are central to the art of the 1990s -- especially the prevalent view of the body as a site of identity and political struggle. Beatty has created a unique, feminist alternative to the traditional "portrait of an artist."
