59 Orgasms.
(interviews of random women about orgasm)

This project started in 1996, as a sound track for video "Imagining an Orgasm". At that point, I was through with two marriages, had 2 kids and did not know what an orgasm was. However, the video part did not satisfy me then and other projects took over.

When few years later I first experienced an orgasm I was laughing at myself. Like one of the interviewed women, I had spontaneous orgasms that once in a while would wake me up (without any sexual content in reality or dreams). I just did not know - what they were (in my case orgasms with a man were stronger than spontaneous ones).

Growing up with taboo on sex, I remember that one of the first encounters of my own awareness that there should be orgasms was when an artist–friend mentioned that his wife, also an artist, was very talented in that. His wife added that during the orgasms she often had ideas and visions for her art works.

It was cute. The only confusing thing was that her works at that point were numerous series of very interesting and sensual drawings of beets and cucumbers.

In winter 2001 - 2002 I briefly continued to interview women for a sound project "59 Orgasms" (I put all interviews together for the first time only now, for this show). At that point the cry of orgasm was of interest to me as a rare, uncontrollable physiological moment (as cry of fear or despair).

Female orgasm remains a mystery and some women never experience it in a lifetime. (I knew a woman who had countless attempts but the best she could achieve was a tickling sensation in her knee.)

Women who experience orgasms feel it in many different ways, even one woman may feel it differently each time. This work shows that variety along with the moral, spiritual, social or personal relation to a subject. This work also shows a wonderful world of women: their voices, personalities, attitudes, thoughts and feelings.

4. Jacki Apple, Hannah Higgins, FF Alumns, at College Art Association,
Chicago, IL, Feb. 11

Jacki Apple, FF Alumn is chairing a panel session "Resurrecting the Disappeared: The Problem of Re-Presentation and Exhibition of Time-based 20th Century Art in the 21st Century" at the College Art Association conference in Chicago. Panel 0n Thursday February 11 from 8:00-10:30 PM.

"Resurrecting the Disappeared: The Problem of Re-Presentation and Exhibition of Time-based 20th Century Art in the 21st Century". The future survival of experiential, temporal, site specific, performative, media-based art of the last half of the 20th century, often dependant on presence, place, and interactivity, is subject to the vagaries and vulnerabilities of memory, and crucial preservation of visual/verbal documentation - scores, images, descriptions, and disintegrating recorded media. How can museums, cultural institutions, scholars and educators meet the challenge of translation in a different context and environment and still retain the formal integrity and spirit of the work in a meaningful way for future generations of audiences? What new ways of conceptualizing and designing exhibitions will be required? How can 21st century technology be employed, and what role can Web archiving play? Given that artists archives are not only the primary source but "artworks" in themselves, how do we address the problem of their imminent loss if they are not collected, housed, and preserved now while artists are still alive? What are the consequences of such a loss to both future exhibitions and education of future artists, historians, and cultural critics? Panelists ten minute presentations will be followed by an extensive roundtable discussion with time allowed for audience participation.

The panelists are Ariane Noël de Tilly, Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands; Lindsay M. King, University Library, Northwestern University, Evanston IL; Discussant: Hannah Higgins, Senior Fellow, Phillips Gallery, Center for Study of Modern Art, Washington, D.C. / University of Illinois, Chicago
