Meeting with ORLAN in Paris – by Sophie Trem



Dear Diane and Shaded Viewers,
I had the chance to meet the unique artist ORLAN during an interview she had with our dearest friend Sofia Tchkonia for her documentary.
ORLAN explores different techniques such as photography, video, sculpture (in resin, marble and inflatable), drawing, installation, performance, biotechnology, etc.
She was the first artist to use surgery as an artistic medium

Not only i was amazed by her artwork and story telling, but  listening to the causes and values she is defending, made me realize how devoted and sincere she was with Life in general, and we know how little we meet such authentic people these days 🙂
Many popular artists such as Walter Van Beirendonck or Lady Gaga have found inspiration in her universe.
