A millennial epic is woven in the New Media curation of traditional media engaging new forms striving for universality of the 21st century icon of the Hieros Gamos.
Each layered collaboration reflects the multiplicity of formation as a third component (the trilogy) accessing the Third realm of the quantum:
ICONS OF THE 21st CENTURY
January 20-25, 2005, Lab Gallery, Midtown Manhattan
The premiere curation sourced in the Hieros Gamos opened at the Lab Gallery in New York City had 15 artists in a wide range of media.
Jan 2007 - Jan 2008, The Lab Gallery, Midtown Manhattan
A series of five performances painstakingly scheduled to occur during specific astrological moments throughout the year. Streitfeld will spend five days at a time weaving the real and surreal into her unique literary art form: the blog-novel. The successive installation performances will be based on the four natural elements, culminating with the final element that unifies it all: the hieros gamos. You can catch the artist fasting while plugging away at the key-board beginning with Fire (January 22nd-27), Water (May 7th-11th), Earth (June 18th-22nd), and Air (September 24th-28th). The experiment will conclude under the full moon during January 21st-25th, 2008, where she will mold spirit into matter in the final installment exploring the Hieros Gamos. You will be able to read her updated installments daily at www.rogersmithnews.com.This multimedia project was timed to the change of seasons and eclipses, passing through the four alchemical stages for a nude Bliss performance culminating in the Hieros Gamos under a Lunar Eclipse on my birthday.
BLACK MADONNA 2009
May - October 2009, HP Garcia Gallery, NYC
This multimedia exhibition of 23 artists explored the manner of expression of the dark feminine or kundalini energy. The use of the western term Black Madonna brought a Kundalini dialectic into art — direct from the Templar lineage into the art world.
WOMAN IN THE 21ST CENTURY: MARGARET FULLER AND THE SACRED MARRIAGE
May 23 - Aug 30, Cambridge & NYC
This multi-media exhibition in two location celebrating the feminine emergence from the holistic perspective of the Mother of American Literature realized a fusion of the sacred marriage (Hieros Gamos) of its title. Text, image and performance as sacred conjuring of spirit and image interconnected with a civic project, the Margaret Fuller Bicentennial, to establish a prototype for highly collaborative group art projects marrying Heaven (Internet) and Earth (gallery) through a blog carrying the theme way beyond the space/time of the exhibition.
MISSING JAMES FRANCO 3.0
The Missing James Franco Project (2015-2017) was developed concurrently with writing an entirely new form of quantum literature incorporating past, present & future: Missing James Franco 3.0: Nine Days at Berlinale 65. The meta narrative of the text reflects the meta nature of the “Franco Phenomenon” in which quantum reality demonstrates the shift from the post-postmodernism into the Neo-modernism pursuit of a unifying Truth. The urban project was conceived to publicize the book so it could be published; instead it funded the author’s meta travelogue through Europe.
This project was initiated during the Cypriot unification talks in 2017. Performances were conducted on both sides of the Green Line to culminate a two decade conscious quest for the present state of eternal embodiment of the once and future Venus as Morning & Evening Star.
August 2018, Faro
Portuguese healer, multimedia artist and performer Hélio de Jesus Pereira Mestre curated by Dr. Streitfeld. By the summer of 2018, the project had five years of preparation in the form of seed gathering and ritual in Norway, Croatia, Belgium, Mexico and Portugal. The cyclic accumulation and distribution of 9,000 seeds represents both a beginning and ending. Although nine is the number for endings, it is also the number for wisdom and the “nine worlds of the Nordic cosmology”.
