Tamara Kostianovsky

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Tamara Kostianovsky Tamara Kostianovsky was born in Jerusalem, Israel, in 1974 and grew up in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Her installations and sculptures confront the viewers with the real and grotesque nature of violence, offering a context to reflect on the vulnerability of our physical existence. Her work questions unchecked brutality while investigating the relationships between poverty, consumption, and desire, hoping to create a model of the architecture of violence. She literally cannibalizes her wardrobe into art—using the various fabrics and textures to conjure flesh, bone, gristle, and slabs of fat in life-size sculptures of livestock carcasses. The material connects our bodies with the ones in the work, bringing violent acts into a familiar realm. (via) Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket
