Orlan - From Incidental Striptease series, 1974-1975
“I can observe my own body cut open without suffering !…. I can see myself all the way down to my viscera, a new stage of gaze. I can see to the heart of my lover and it’s splendid design has nothing to do with symbolics mannered usually drawn.
Darling, I love your spleen, I love your liver, I adore your pancreas and the line of your femur excites me.”
— Orlan, Manifesto of Carnal Art
