Project description:

ORLAN is an artist whose work is always controversial and pushing the traditional boundaries, in life and art. By proclaiming her body an instrument of art, ORLAN has built a universe of personal iconography that encompasses the broad spectrum of the artist’s unique exploits: unforgettable performances, photographs, video projects, installations and multimedia projects.
