"Not every artist is for sale. Case in point: Eurydice" -NBC
Eurydice writes about sex. Wicked, deviant, dirty, dirty sex. But that doesn't make her some mindless bimbo, OK?
Some cover headlines you can't avoid. So when July SPIN heralds an exclusive, "Sin City: Sex in the Vatican," one may be moved to briefly put aside the July Atlantic Monthly, which predicts an economic depression.
Hip without being glib, smart without being smug, Eurydice takes readers on an eye-opening tour of the American sexual underworld and emerges with the news that sexual deviance isn't deviant at all
Contrary to popular opinion -- not to mention that of the many millionaires who descended upon Miami for Art Basel -- not all art is a commodity, and not every artist is for sale. Case in point: Eurydice, who led the band of unbuyable visualists known as Occupy Art Basel.
I must say I felt something similar while reading the likewise pseudonymous Eurydice’s Satyricon USA , a chatty, bizarrely erudite and frequently astute “road tour” of the far frontier of state-of-the-art American sexuality.
When writer and artist Eurydice Kamvyselli was just 8 years old in late-1970s Greece, her schoolteacher informed her she was a Lesbian. But the teacher didn’t mean a homosexual woman — she meant a person from Lesbos.
The former Spin magazine contributor would have you know that she is one of those brainy sex writers, the kind for whom the dialogues of Plato are as relevant as the Kama Sutra.
Love may be a many-splendored thing, but sex is a many-faceted thing, as Eurydice, sex columnist for Gear magazine, has discovered.
A fascinating tour of the sexual fringes of our society, an inside look at worlds into which most of us will never seek or gain entrance.
A cutesy autobiographical note on the flyleaf of this novel tells us that Eurudice was born on Lesbos, that 'by the age of eight she had rewritten the books in her father's library, including Homer, Shakespeare and Beckett', and that at 14 she had run off to Hollywood.
Walking in Miami's winter heat towards a slither of land between the beach and wealthy Indian Creek billionaire bunker "La Gorce" is somewhat surreal. In the part of town known as mid-beach where you never know who lives in which condo canyon.
I was born on the island of Lesbos in Greece. I taught myself to read at age two. When I went to school in Athens at five, I realized that being termed a Lesbian was derogatory and I would be shunned if I didn’t hide my birthplace.
Eurydice, the mononymical author of Satyricon USA, doesn't see things so simply. For her, repression—the result of everything from lingering Calvinism to political correctness—helps produce sexual subcultures as far afield as bloodsport lesbians, lecherous priests, and subjects of alien sexual experiments.
Eurydice Kamvyselli struck me as a woman who resists nonsense, but more so, foolishness from any opponent who questions her prerogative. But her confrontation is directed towards men (since it has been men creating most sex scandals), and rescuing our vaginas and womanhood, as an agency.
Born on Lesbos, Greece, Eurydice is a multimedia artist & writer whose body of work is infused with consistent ideological & aesthetic resistance to female marginalization & silence.
This collection of interviews with inhabitants of the sexual fringe reads like an odd combination of a reporter's raw files and an undergraduate's paper.
In what Gear magazine deemed a "rich and fascinating portrait of sex in America," Eurydice gives us a frontline report on the reality of sex life in the United States -- from "fringe" sexual behavior and sex-on-the-Net to how and why sex has changed from a private activity to a public display.
