ORLAN Hybridity, Creativity, and Emancipatory Critique in the Somaesthetic Art of ORLAN
Keywords:Body, somaesthetics, creativity, hybridity, performance, liberty, critique, surgery, baroque
After a brief introduction to ORLAN’s art, Else Marie Bukdahl engages the artist in a dialogue about the richly diverse ways she uses the body as her primary artistic medium. The dialogue explores her work on hybridity, creativity, performance, and the emancipatory critique of oppressively entrenched social conventions and beliefs (including those of institutional religion), while also touching on topics as different as biological art, digital technology, and the Baroque.
