Artist Talk with Laura Splan
Laura’s presentation was nicely done. It was good to see the work she produced here. We also got a more in-depth view of what she has done in the past. I particularly liked the work with facial peel material. I know how delicate it is so I am impressed by the effort and patience that went into it.
The use of the body in and as a work of art is interesting. I think it is a way of attempting to free women’s bodies from traditional objectification and yet, in a way it creates an object of the body by using its impression and even parts of itself as the art. Strange dichotomy.
