To perceive, in the darkness of the present, this light that strives to reach us but cannot — this is what it means to be contemporary.

— Giorgio Agamben

Our time, the present, is in fact not only the most distant: it cannot in any way reach us. Its backbone is broken and we find ourselves in the exact point of this fracture. This is why we are, despite everything, contemporaries. It is important to realize that the appointment that is in question in contemporariness does not simply take place in chronological time: it is something that, working within chronological time, urges, presses, and transforms it. And this urgency is the untimeliness, the anachronism that permits us to grasp our time in the form of a “too soon” that is also a “too late” — of an “already” that is also a “not yet.” Moreover, it allows us to recognize in the obscurity of the present the light that, without ever being able to reach us, is perpetually voyaging toward us.”

Giorgio Agamben

Excavating Beyond the Male Gaze

Switch(on)Paper, November, 2020

Standing before a map of Aphrodite’s Island at the Getty Museum, Lisa Streitfeld resolved to penetrate her split body. The Cypriot quest became a meta narrative launched in timing with the 2012 Venus Transit of the Sun. The text split between the duality of Venus as Morning & Evening Star crystallizes the holistic philosophy at its source while bringing the divine feminine back from exile.

June 2007 – March 2021

The Aquarian Conversion Experiment was launched in Alchemy of Love In Five Elements (2007-2008) under the January 20, 2007 initiation of the Lab gallery space by a priestess. The evolution of an iconic trademark of the Hieros Gamos developed via the interior/exterior journey over the next 14 years.

AQUARIAN CONVERSION

Dr. Lisa Streitfeld has tirelessly worked to promote a new modernism sourced in an authentic gender balance known as the Hieros Gamos.

This is where the epic began…Buenos Aires 1984…

CHAMPAGNE TANGO

The novel that catalyzed the literary quest was begun with the Olivetti manual typewriter on a hard wood floor in the rundown Once district of Buenos Aries. The challenge is to create a fluid form in which past, present and future converged into a quantum reality defined by reverie, memory and dreams woven into the present vision of a glorified future as a literary lioness. This literary adventure was an escape from the fractured surface reality of hyperinflation in a land that time forgot. In this atmosphere undermined by the uncertainty of structural breakdown, tango is metaphor for the rigid tension of the gender opposites converging in movement and image.
