GOTHAM ART & THEATER
by Elisabeth Kley
For the 61-year-old Swiss-German artist Miriam Cahn
, now having her first U.S. show at Elizabeth Dee on West 20th Street in Chelsea, art-making is an atavistic affair. She made many works timed around her menstrual cycle, to root them in the natural processes of womanhood, and produced large black-and-white drawings using her entire body to make marks on large sheets of paper on the floor.
