Holmes à Court Gallery is showing a selection of the Self-Hybridizations, Pre-Columbian series as part of BEAP 2007. In 1998 Orlan launched a worldwide tour of differing standards of beauty in various civilisations and through history. Following several stays in Mexico she began with the Pre-Columbian cultures. Since 1964, French artist Orlan has been active in many areas of the arts – painting, sculpting, poetry, dance, theatre, photography, street performance and social activism.

She is perhaps most well known in Australia as being the first artist to use surgery for artistic ends with her surgery performances. Having refigured her face through a series of plastic surgeries she hybridises this new image to aesthetic values from these other cultures. Working with a digital technician to mingle the real with the virtual, taking the ‘other’ inside under her own skin, she creates digital melds of her face with the stone of the Pre-Columbian sculptures, making self-hybridisations in which the grotesque becomes inseparable from the beautiful. The artist will be in Perth for the exhibition. Works in this exhibition are for sale. We would like to thank the following for their involvement in this event:
