Artist and Oeuvre: Orlan, an icon of contemporary art in France, is an important proponent of Body Art and the founder of "Carnal Art".
"I can observe my own body cut open, without suffering!... I see myself all the way down to my entrails; a new mirror stage... I can see to the heart of my lover; his splendid design has nothing to do with sickly sentimentalities... Darling, I love your spleen; I love your liver; I adore your pancreas, and the line of your femur excites me." (from Carnal Art manifesto)
