ORLAN

creates sculptures, photographs, performances, videos, videogames, and augmented reality, using scientific and medical technics like surgery and biogenetic. Those are only mediums for her; the idea prevails and the materiality pursues. ORLAN makes her own body the medium, the raw material, and the visual support of her work. It takes place as the “public debate.” She is a major figure of body art and of “carnal art,” as she defined it in her 1989 manifesto. Her commitment and her liberty are an integral part of her work. She defends innovative, interrogative and subversive, positions throughout her work. ORLAN constantly and radically changes the data, which disrupts conventions and “ready-made thinking.” She is opposed to natural determinism, in all forms of social and political domination, male supremacy, religion, cultural segregation and racism, etc. Always mixed with humor, often parodic or even grotesque, her provocative artworks can shock because she shakes up the pre-established codes. ORLAN won the E-reputation award, designating the most observed and followed artist on the Web.

Donatien Grau (ed.), Christoph Wiesner (ed.): Après la crise

Après la crise établit une plateforme de conversation entre protagonistes de l’art, de l’écriture, de la théorie, de l’exposition, et de l’histoire, afin d’interroger le statut de la photographie aujourd’hui. Les contributeurs viennent des domaines de la théorie critique, de la fiction, de la performance, de la photographie de mode, des musées, du cinéma et du design, et leurs discussions réunissent l’histoire et le contemporain. Ces échanges établissent des parallèles entre la situation actuelle des images photographiques et la crise vécue par la représentation au temps de la naissance de la photographie ; ils mettent en perspective notre relation aux images photographiques à l’ère numérique, et nous permettent de voir en la photographie un médium, une voie pour explorer la politique, l’esthétique, les émotions de nos vies.

 

Au travers de ces conversations vivantes, et des introductions sagaces qui les précèdent, nous en venons à ressentir le fardeau existentiel d’être entouré par des images, tout en commençant à saisir la profondeur historique d’un questionnement des images qui s’ouvrit bien avant la génération actuelle, et qui se confronte aux sujets politiques et culturels cruciaux de notre temps.
