- SCHNEEMANN Carolee, Meat Joy. 1964 (happening). Judson Church, NYC. Group performance : raw fish, chickens, sausages, wet paint, plastic, rope, shredded scrap paper. First performed as part of the First Expression at The American Center in Paris, and later at Judson Memorial Church in NYC. « Meat Joy has the character of an erotic rite : excessive, indulgent, a célébration of flesh as material : raw fish, chickens, sausages, wet paint, transparent plastic, rope brushes, paper scrap. It’s propulsion is toward the ecstatic – shifting and turning between tenderness, wilderness, précision, abandon : qualities which could at any moment be sensual, comic, joyous, repellent. »
