wishes

by Katyslany

I still wish on stars, sometimes.

When one is not enough I wish on constellations;

(I wish on entire galaxies.)

You can have my wish tonight. I’ll wish it for you.

I wish you passion that slips in through your skin and wakes you, before you’re ready.

I wish you hope that surrounds you and tucks you in at night.

I wish you quiet when you don’t seek it, and noisy when you need it. I wish you a song that slides inside your hips and won’t be still. I wish you a laugh that throws your head back and refuses to be contained.

I wish you your eight-year-old smile, escaping, in the middle of your important, grown-up day.

(I saw it once peeking out, before you put it away. I know it’s in there.)

I wish you wistful wanting that goes unfulfilled…for awhile.

I wish all your jagged edges washed smooth by tears that come from laughing too hard and too long; from beauty that makes them spill out without your permission.

I wish you forgetting. I wish the ink of your old hurts faded, weathered by the sun, until you can’t read them anymore.

I wish you a dream that sinks its teeth into you and won’t let go. That interrupts your plans. That keeps you up at night.
I wish you a heart that aches from stretching in undiscovered places.

I wish you more, and again more, and yes still more: love.

(dooble ronbow), spooning,reading old journals/writing new ones,cleaning out my closet, listening to Hanson,dreaming of sailing, blossoms falling that look like snow, late late night walks on the beach,Hugnation, rediscovering old shoes, being asked to help/learning to ask for help,the horizon, CBC, teeny birds outside my window, sparkles on my shoes and everyone I touch, rearranging furniture, breathing, phone calls, new body wash, movies!,yyyyoga, watching friends perform, time, having my dishes done for me, Cyndi Lauper, monitoring my sternum, presents from Turkey, You.

Makes me want to dance and be silly with you

by Katyslany
January 28, 2011

by Katyslany

Last night the moon came
dropping her clothes in the street.
I took it as a sign to start dancing,
falling upwards into the bowl
of sky.
The bowl shatters.
Everywhere is falling everywhere;
nothing else
to do. Here’s the new rule:
Shatter the wineglass and fall
into the glassblowers’ breath.

Women in art with their bodies…

by Katyslany

This is the heart of inspiration for me lately: Woman as subject and object.

 

Actionpant: Genital Panic, рerformance, Valie Export 1969


“She entered a cinema wearing trousers with a triangle of fabric removed at the crotch and walked between the rows of seated viewers. Her action was intended to confront the cliché of women’s cinematic representation as passive objects. The posters were then fly-posted in the streets. ‘I wanted to be provocative, to provoke, but also aggression was part of my intention…I sought to change the people’s way of seeing and thinking’, the artist has said.”

 

Interior Scroll, Carolee Schneeman 1975


“In 1975, Schneemann performed Interior Scroll, a Fluxus-influenced piece featuring her use of text and body. In her performance, Schneemann entered wrapped in a sheet, under which she wore an apron. She disrobed and then got on a table where she outlined her body with dark paint. Several times, she would take “action poses”, similar to those in figure drawing classes.[24] Concurrently, she read from her book Cézanne, She Was a Great Painter. Following this, she dropped the book and slowly extracted from her vagina a scroll from which she read. Schneemann’s feminist scroll speech, according to performance theorist Jeanie Forte, made it seem as if “[Schneemann]’s vagina itself is reporting […] sexism”

Yoko Ono Cut Piece 1964

 

In this first and several subsequent performances, Ono herself sat kneeling on the concert hall stage, wearing her best suit of clothing, with a pair of scissors placed on the floor in front of her. Members of the audience were invited to approach the stage, one at a time, and cut a bit of her clothes off which they were allowed to keep.

Marina Abramovic

Rhythm 10, 1973

In her first performance Abramović explored elements of ritual and gesture. Making use of twenty knives and two tape recorders, the artist played the Russian game in which rhythmic knife jabs are aimed between the splayed fingers of her hand (5-finger fillet). Each time she cut herself, she would pick up a new knife from the row of twenty she had set up, and recorded the operation.
After cutting herself twenty times, she replayed the tape, listened to the sounds, and tried to repeat the same movements, attempting to replicate the mistakes, merging together past and present. She set out to explore the physical and mental limitations of the body – the pain and the sounds of the stabbing, the double sounds from the history and from the replication. With this piece, Abramović began to consider the state of consciousness of the performer. “Once you enter into the performance state you can push your body to do things you absolutely could never normally do.”[12]

 

And because I love Marina…

Real love is free of possession: it is a pure exchange with the universe and it’s elements.
Love is free of control: love is the essence of the universe, the real fuel for creation. Love is free of fears, love is free of the future, free of power, love is a bridge of light, a shamanic exchange.
Love is becoming one with the universe.

I want a life that sizzles and pops and makes me laugh out loud.
And I don’t want to get to the end, or to tomorrow, even,
and realize that my life is a collection of meetings and pop cans
and errands and receipts and dirty dishes. I want to eat cold tangerines,
and sing out loud in the car with the windows open, and wear pink shoes,
and stay up all night laughing, and paint my walls the exact color
of the sky right now. I want to sleep hard on clean white sheets,
and throw parties, and eat ripe tomatoes, and read books so
good they make me jump up and down.
