Carolee Schneemann Outdoor Film Screening at Rosekill Farm
Join us during Upstate Art Weekend for an outdoor film screening
Wood oven pizza will be available at 8pm, bonfire after screening. Admission is free ($10 suggested donation), rsvp encouraged but not required.
This evening is organized by Glasshouse, in partnership with the Carolee Schneemann Foundation and Rosekill Art Farm
Carolee Schneemann (1939-2019) was a pioneering American artist, known for her multi-media works on the body, narrative, sexuality and gender. Since the early 1960s, Schneemann used film and video in her experimental work, shattering taboos and redefining the notion of the erotic. Her seminal performances of the 1970s were as transgressive as they were influential. Schneemann’s cinematic work continues to provoke, exploring female sexuality in relation to art-making, ritual, and human-animal relationships.
Water Light/Water Needle (Lake Mah Wah, NJ)
1966, 11:13 MIN, COLOR, SOUND, 16 MM FILM ON HD VIDEO
Schneemann's classic 1966 aerial "Kinetic Theatre" work was first staged at St. Mark's Church in the Bowery, with eight performers moving to a score of randomized encounter on layers of rigged ropes and pulleys. One of two video documents of this early and influential performance, this version is enacted outdoors in trees and across the surface of a lake, in sequences directed by Schneemann. Original Footage: John Jones, Sheldon Rocklin.
1967, 4:12 MIN, B&W, SILENT, 16 MM FILM ON VIDEO
Body Collage is a visceral "movement-event" from 1967, in which Schneemann paints her body with wallpaper paste and molasses, and then runs, leaps, falls into and rolls through shreds of white printer's paper, creating a physicalized corporal collage. "My intention was not simply to collage my body (as an object), but to enact movement so that the collage image would be active, found, not predetermined or posed," writes Schneemann. Performed and Edited by Carolee Schneemann. From 16mm b&w film footage by Gideon Bachmann.
Interior Scroll - The Cave
1995, 7:31 MIN, COLOR, SOUND
In a vast underground cave, Schneemann and seven nude women perform the ritualized actions of Interior Scroll — reading the text as each woman slowly extracts a scroll from her vagina. The scroll embodies the primacy of an extended visual line shaped as both concept and action. The extracted text merges critical theory with the body as a source of knowledge. Beatty's camera moves from the naked group actions into close-ups of the unraveling text. Edited and Produced by Maria Beatty. Cave Participants: Lilah Friedland, Jade, Jackie Lipton, Sativa Peterson, Naomi Schechter, Carolee Schneemann. Voices: Maria Beatty, Kathy Brew, Cynthia Gaasch, Carolee Schneemann. Camera: Maria Beatty, Abigail Child, Caroline Koebel, Ethan Mass, James Schaeffer. On-Line Editor: Karen Heyson.
Infinity Kisses - The Movie
2008, 9:18 MIN, COLOR, SOUND, HD VIDEO
Infinity Kisses - The Movie completes Schneemann's exploration of human and feline sensual communication. It incorporates extracts of the original 124 self-shot 35mm color slide photo sequence, Infinity Kisses, in which the expressive self-determination of the ardent cat was recorded over an eight-year period. Infinity Kisses - The Movie recomposes these images into a video, in which each dissolving frame is split between its full image and a hugely enlarged detail.
1964-67, 29:37 MIN, COLOR, SILENT, 16 MM FILM ON HD VIDEO
Schneemann's self-shot erotic film remains a controversial classic. "The notorious masterpiece... a silent celebration in colour of heterosexual love making. The film unifies erotic energies within a domestic environment through cutting, superimposition and layering of abstract impressions scratched into the celluloid itself... Fuses succeeds perhaps more than any other film in objectifying the sexual streamings of the body's mind" — The Guardian, London
This event is organized by Glasshouse and hosted at Rosekill Art Farm 155 Binnewater Road, Rosendale

MARNI KOTAK "MIDNIGHT SWIM"
“Midnight Swim” (2022) is a new installation/performance for Rosekill in which Kotak invites the audience to take a midnight swim with her in the lake at Rosekill at midnight, surrounded by an installation she creates for the event.
The piece continues her ongoing practice of presenting everyday life as art through “Found Performances”–or works based on her daily activities, experiences or accomplishments, such as giving birth (The Birth of Baby X, 2011), attending her grandfather’s funeral (My Grandfather’s Funeral, 2009), constructing a refuge to convalesce after a fire in her home (Treehouse, 2017), and in this instance, taking a midnight swim with loved ones and audience members who will become fast friends. “Found Performances” are time-based performances found from real daily life in the sense of Duchamp’s readymade found object sculptures.
