Orlan, prêtresse de la mutilation: Un mélange de Cruella et d'un taxi new-yorkais

by Suzanne Colpron

La Presse [magazine insert], Sept. 25, 1997, p. 3

In this brief interview with Orlan, she discusses that contrary to the media's suggestions, she is not trying to remake herself in the image of the Mona Lisa or Venus de Milo. She ultimately states that she works against standards of beauty, in order to uncover the pressures put upon female bodies in the Western world.
