E H P O R T S A T A C T S PO I A J O E V I T A R O B A COLL Lydia Lunch is one of such people that I wish to learn from in a lineup that includes visual artists, classical Indian musicians, kirtan bands, singer-songwriters, yoga psychologists and yoga masters from India.
Bringing together a collective of
diverse women artists who seek to inspire others by demystifying the practical application of a variety of creative methods, we seek to offer simple tools which can easily be incorporated into expanding the individual’s own unique form of expression.
I met Lydia Lunch in San Francisco in 1998 and showed her artworks, along with Jane Handel’s, in a two-woman show at a gallery I owned and ran at the time. Lydia has always been a great inspiration for me. I admire her fierceness and the way that she expresses ANYTHING she wants. I mean, really, how many fierce women do we have on the planet? Although her work is edgy and can be intense, I am always amazed that she does it and does it so well, going all the way in her process. Her journey from teenage No Wave rocker and artist to her current works has brought her to this point, and this point includes tremendous compassion. She wants to help women who are locked up inside through the healing power of art.
So I decided to host Lydia Lunch's POSTCATASTROPHE COLLABORATIVE
OJAI, May 24-27
to see what will happen in a group of women working with Lydia and other artists as
their potential and most importantly, what needs to be said. I think a lot of the women will already have projects in hand that they wish to expand upon with a group of collaborative woman. Lydia
powerfully share their concepts and art. Of course, some women will show up and wish to observe, journal and be inspired. This will be fine too. Or, some women I know are coming without an idea of what to do, but will jump in and collaborate with others, or will let their own creative “download” happen at the workshop and then run with it. Many of the women will want to bounce off ideas with others and create a sacred space to collaborate and dynamically grow their ideas to the full. There will be many surprises and spontaneous outcomes.
