Irrigation Veins: Selected Works 1966 - 1983

Galerie Lelong & Co. and P·P·O·W present Irrigation Veins: Ana Mendieta and Carolee Schneemann, Selected Works 1966 – 1983, an online exhibition exploring the artists’ parallel histories, iconographies, and shared affinities for ancient forms and the natural world. Galerie Lelong and P·P·O·W have a history of collaboration and have co-represented Carolee Schneemann since 2017. This exhibitions marks the first time the two artists have been shown together in direct dialogue, an exhibition Schneemann proposed during the last year of her life. The works presented touch on the artists’ shared interest in temporal duration, endurance, renewal, saturation of material, and the transformation of the body. When speaking at a panel about Mendieta in 2011, Schneemann explained, “So for both of us, it seems there is a phylogeny that recapitulates mythology. It is the sense that there are certain energies and momentums that will be opened and coincidentally discovered and explored: so here’s the explicit body taking the deeper roots of genital sexuality into the recognition of forms of nature, and how we would interact and inhabit those forms of nature.”
