Niki de Saint Phalle: The power of playfulness
"Nikki de Saint Phalle exploded onto the international art scene in 1961 with her Tirs (Shooting Paintings). The artist secreted plastic bags filled with paint behind paintings, and sculptures; the bags burst when the works were shot by a gun held by Saint Phalle or other participants."
This dress is made from meat! Artist Jana Sterbak: "(It) could be interpreted in many ways, form the respect that we do not accord to animals we raise for our food needs, to our own aging and death, the rituals of possession and absorption etc. Vanitas could also be about the way time changes our perception of works." (The dress was flesh when first exhibited, but now dried so looks like leather which somehow makes it more acceptable). Fascinating.
