Carolee Schneemann b. 1939
Interior Scroll - The Cave (1975-1995)
1975-1995, 7:30 min, color, sound

In a vast underground cave, Schneemann and seven nude women perform the ritualized actions of Interior Scroll reading the text as each woman slowly extracts a scroll from her vagina. The scroll embodies the primacy of an extended visual line shaped as both concept and action. The extracted text merges critical theory with the body as a source of knowledge. Beatty's camera moves from the naked group actions into close-ups of the unraveling text.-- EAI
