International Womens' Day: Rebecca Goyette, Cranberry Cryalot & Human Juices
- This evening also includes conversations on domestic violence, and how to safely navigate the blurring of the lines between artist + viewer in performance art -
CRANBERRY CRYALOT & HUMAN JUICES
Embracing a fruitful multiplicity of sexual desire, Rebecca Goyette’s multimedia artwork delves into complex characters based partially in the real (scientific fact, Puritan history, the annals of witchcraft, Goddess worship and the paranormal) and partially in fantasy. Goyette recounts the psychosexual dramas of her direct ancestor, Rebecca Nurse, who was hanged as a Salem witch in her “Ghost Bitch” films, while embodying the mating rituals of lobster in her extensive series of costumed Lobsta Pornos. Rebecca Goyette is represented by Freight and Volume Gallery, NYC. She has exhibited internationally with solo shows at Freight and Volume, Spektrum: Art, Science and Community, Berlin, Germany, Jersey City Museum, Jersey City, NJ and Galerie X, Istanbul, Turkey and group shows/performances at Museum of Sex, NYC, Whitney Museum of Art, NYC, Queens Museum of Art, Weisman Museum of Art, MN, KARST, Plymouth, England and Gallery Poulsen, Copenhagen, Denmark, amongst others. Her work has been reviewed in the European television program Arté and in the Village Voice, Vice Magazine, Hyperallergic, Huffington Post, Playboy Magazine, Newsweek Magazine and Ms. Magazine. Goyette has also lectured and taught art making at the Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, School of Visual Arts, New York University, Cooper Union, Montclair University, Eyebeam and The New School.
