Kathe Izzo is a poet and conceptual artist whose preferred mediums
are the ties that bind: childhood, motherhood, sex, love and community.
Her poetry, memoirs and short fiction have been published in numerous
journals and anthologies including the recent AROUSED, edited by Karen
Finley/Thundersmouth Press, and well as the AMERICAN BIBLE OF OUTLAW POETRY,
BLOOD AND TEARS/poems for Matthew Shephard, and THE BEST OF THE BEST LESBIAN
EROTICA. Transcripts of some of her early performances have been included
in the recent Jack Smith collection of writings, MEET ME AT THE BOTTOM
OF THE POOL, published by Serpent's Tail Press and edited by J. Hoberman,
film critic for The Village Voice. She was the recipient of two consecutive
Massachusetts Cultural Council awards for her Shadow Writing Project,
a collaborative writing program for youth at risk, through which she published
FLICKER, a series of teen writing journals and continues to work as a
youth advocate, currently developing a national youth playwrights festival,
targeted to premiere in Spring 2003.
Izzo's elegant installations, both confrontational and emotionally intimate,
incorporate her physical presence with both the natural and sacred worlds.
Laying in fragile tableaus for anywhere from 3-5 days with only periodic
breaks for movement, she works in a meditative atmosphere that challenges
the protective beliefs between limitation and liberation. She recently
received a grant through the Provincetown Community Compact's 100 Artists
Project for her historic timeline: SPIRAL OF HOME 2, a collaborative installation
working with 33 men and boys, born and raised in Provincetown, ages 0-96,
opening April 26, 2002 at the Silas-Kenyon Gallery in the Schoolhouse
Center in Provincetown (www.schoolhousecenter.com).
"(Kathe Izzo) makes intensely private work that oddly lets lets
the world walk around in it . . . Its oddly heavy and comic and
deliberately perverse . . . (She) puts her words and body on the line
more than any other contemporary artist I know."
"Her construction(s) make the point that there are many different
ways to see the same thing. As metaphors, (they) signal both refuge
and transition. . . beginning and end . . . entrance and exit . . .
a place to crawl into and a place to escape from . . ."
