Carolee Schneemann, 'Precarious'
Part of the Abandon Normal Devices Festival
Tate Liverpool: Exhibition
23 September – 27 September 2009

Tate Liverpool presents an exhibition by the pioneering performance artist Carolee Schneemann (born 1939), as part of the inaugural Abandon Normal Devices (AND) festival.

Schneemann premieres Precarious, a multi-screen video installation that continues the artist’s investigation into the relationship between personal experience and the changeability of human perception. The work consists of fragments of visual material − at times unexpected and provocative − which draw from elements of Schneemann’s personal environment.

The artist also gave a live performance of her lecture Mysteries of the Iconographies in the gallery on the evening of Thursday 24 September 2009.
