ABOUT THE ARTIST
Kathe Izzo is a poet and conceptual artist whose preferred mediums are
the ties that bind: childhood, motherhood, sex, love and community. Her
poetry, memoirs and short fiction have been published in numerous journals
and anthologies including the recent AROUSED, edited by Karen Finley/Thundersmouth
Press, and well as the AMERICAN BIBLE OF OUTLAW POETRY, BLOOD AND TEARS/poems
for Matthew Shephard, and THE BEST OF THE BEST LESBIAN EROTICA. Transcripts
of some of her early performances have been included in the recent Jack
Smith collection of writings, MEET ME AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POOL, published
by Serpent's Tail Press and edited by J. Hoberman, film critic for The
Village Voice. She was the recipient of two consecutive Massachusetts
Cultural Council awards for her Shadow Writing Project, a collaborative
writing program for youth at risk, through which she published FLICKER,
a series of teen writing journals and continues to work as a youth advocate,
currently developing a national youth playwrights festival, targeted to
premiere in Spring 2003.
Izzo's elegant installations, both confrontational and emotionally intimate,
incorporate her physical presence with both the natural and sacred worlds.
Laying in fragile tableaus for anywhere from 3-5 days with only periodic
breaks for movement, she works in a meditative atmosphere that challenges
the protective beliefs between limitation and liberation. She recently
received a grant through the Provincetown Community Compact's 100 Artists
Project for her historic timeline: SPIRAL OF HOME 2, a collaborative installation
working with 33 men and boys, born and raised in Provincetown, ages 0-96,
opening April 26, 2002 at the Silas-Kenyon Gallery in the Schoolhouse
Center in Provincetown (www.schoolhousecenter.com).
"(Kathe Izzo) makes intensely private work that oddly lets lets
the world walk around in it . . . Its oddly heavy and comic and
deliberately perverse . . . (She) puts her words and body on the line
more than any other contemporary artist I know."
"Her construction(s) make the point that there are many different
ways to see the same thing. As metaphors, (they) signal both refuge
and transition. . . beginning and end . . . entrance and exit . . .
a place to crawl into and a place to escape from . . ."
