The Cut in Creation: An Introduction to Psychoanalysis, Art and the Occult with Dr. Vanessa Sinclair
Date: Monday, January 11th
Time: 8pm
Admission: $8
Location: Morbid Anatomy Museum, 424 Third Avenue, 11215 Brooklyn NY

This is the inaugural event of a series exploring the intersection, integration and application of psychoanalytic theory, the arts, and the occult, curated by psychoanalyst, Dr. Vanessa Sinclair. Throughout the series, Sinclair will be hosting a variety of psychoanalysts, psychologists, artists and occultists from a range of backgrounds and theoretical orientations. Presenters will discuss their work, personal experience and areas of research interest, opening up a dialogue between practitioners in fields of study that rarely have a chance to engage with one another yet often operate in similar and complementary ways.

In this first discussion, Sinclair and artist Katelan Foisy will present their ongoing research into the implications of the cut-up method of Brion Gysin and William S. Burroughs, specifically when integrated with theory and practice of chaos magic, witchcraft and psychoanalysis. Foisy and Sinclair are currently working on a book paying tribute to Burroughs and Gysin's seminal work The Third Mind. Through a series of experimentations, some taken directly from The Third Mind while others inspired by it, the pair explore the spaces that can be created when systems are broken down. By calling upon the work of artists who highlight the importance of the cut in their own work, the pair examine the essential nature of the cut in creation.

Katelan Foisy is a multimedia artist, writer and witch. Her fine art pieces have been displayed at The Worcester Art Museum, Ohio History Museum, MODA, WEAM, A&D Gallery, and Last Rights. She has graced the pages of the Grammy Award programs and the stage of Cynthia von Buhler's immersive plays "Speakeasy Dollhouse" and "Brother's Booth." Katelan has been featured in NY Times, Elle Magazine, Paper Magazine, GQ Italy, Time Out NY and many others for her work both as an artist and curator. She has written for Motherboard/VICE, Electric Literature, Luna Luna, and COILHOUSE. She was called a "Female Jack Kerouac" by Taylor Mead.

Vanessa Sinclair, Psy.D. is a psychoanalyst and clinical psychologist in private practice in New York City. She is a founding member of Das Unbehagen: A Free Association for Psychoanalysis, which facilitates psychoanalytic lectures, classes and events in and around New York City. She contributes to various publications including The Fenris Wolf (Edda Publishing), DIVISION/Review: A Quarterly Psychoanalytic Forum, and the Brooklyn Rail.
