ORLAN at Goldsmiths

Tuesday 5 February 2008
Department of Drama

The Department of Drama's Performance Research Forum and the Digital
Studios' (Department of Computing) Thursday Club are delighted to co-host
this special event, aTALK by one of the most original and provocative
woman artists working today in what she calls CARNAL ART.

"Unlike 'Body Art', from which I set it apart, Carnal Art does not desire
pain as a means of redemption, or to attain purification. Carnal Art does
not wish to achieve a final 'plastic' result, but rather seeks to modify
the body, and engage in public debate………Carnal Art is not against
cosmetic surgery but, rather against the conventions carried by it and
their subsequent inscription, within female flesh in particular, but also
male. Carnal Art is feminist, that is necessary. It is interested not only
in cosmetic surgery, but also advanced techniques in medicine and biology
that question the status of the body and the ethical questions posed by
them" ORLAN

All welcome. Entrance free. Latecomers will not be admitted.
