Artist Talk with Laura Splan

Laura Splan’s Website

Laura Splan at the Museum of Contemporary Craft

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.
