A Five-Day Surgery on the practicalities and functionalities of working with the body. ‘The Body as Art’ puts 6 artists & 2 theorists into the company of a Doctor – Dr Tuheen Hudan – and an experienced artist – Michael Mayhew – to talk / enquire / investigate the functionality and practicalities of working with the body within a performative context.
Five DVDs from five different members of the public participating in Brian Lobel’s Carpe Minuta Prima performance.
Publication of the verbatim theatre show of the same title.
An in-depth account of Orlan’s pioneering art. The book covers her career in performance and a range of other art forms.
The French performance artist’s practice of self-directed violence creates a spectacle that violates the viewer and establishes Orlan’s body as “a site of public debate.” Her work radically exposes the violence of patriarchically established “beauty standards.”
A series of episodes exploring life in a spasm, liminal spaces and the body as a permanent site of trauma.
Considers how the artist’s ever-fluctuating reconstructions of her face question idealized beauty and female identity, persuasively arguing that Orlan’s surgically reinvented face succeeds in both reinforcing and breaking apart corporeal subjectivity and representation.
