Carolee Schneemann is a pioneer in many artistic disciplines. Having consistently challenged concepts of sexuality and gender identity in the fields of painting, sculpture, installation art, video art and, most importantly, performance with key works such as Meat Joy (1964) and Interior Scroll (1975), Schneemann broke new grounds within the Happening and performance fields subverting taboos facing women artists in the 60s and 70s. Schneemann will install three major video installations at during this year’s Summerhall Festival in Edinburgh– ‘Precarious‘ (2009), ‘Devour‘ (2003) and ‘Infinity Kisses – The Movie‘ (2008) as well as displaying a never before exhibited photographic series where she performed ice skating naked in London while holding her cat.
