    schema:description ""Responding to Orlan's definition of her performance surgeries as 'carnal art', C. Jill O'Bryan considers how the artist's ever-fluctuating reconstructions of her face question idealized beauty and female identity, persuasively arguing that Orlan7F 19s surgically reinvented face succeeds in both reinforcing and breaking apart corporeal subjectivity and representation. O'Bryan contextualizes Orlan's operations within the centuries-long history of public dissections and surgeries, lavish anatomical illustrations created to draw the gaze into the opened anatomy, Artaud7F 19s 'Theater of Cruelty' in the early twentieth century, and contemporary works and performances by Cindy Sherman, Hans Bellman, and Annie Sprinkle. A compelling blurring of the line between feminist theory and art criticism, O'Bryan7F 19s close examination of Orlan7F 19s performance surgeries complicates and reconfigures the notions of identity - and its relation to the body - at the very boundary dividing art from identity." -- Publisher's website."@en ;
