The Alchemy of Love: Hieros Gamos
Action Reciproque: 5:30 PM, January 23, 2008
Lisa Paul Streitfeld conducts a multimedia action reciproque during a five-day writing performance/installation. Michael Manning (USA) and Tatyana Stepanova (Russia) execute an action painting to improvisational music by the violoncello artist, Lutz Rath (Germany).
The Alchemy of Love: Hieros Gamos concludes the blogel (www.thealchemyoflove.blogspot.com) inspired by four successive multimedia installation/performances, painstakingly scheduled to occur during specific astrological moments throughout the year. Under a full moon activating the gateway January 23, 1997 cosmological configuration of the Hieros Gamos, the series culminates with the quintessential element binding heaven and earth.
