Tamara Kostianovsky


'Mesmerising flesh', by Tamara Kostianovsky is an abettor of sumptuous fabric carcasses with guts of tropical foliage inhabited by incredible birds. Created from clothing Tamara explains that this medium was affordable to her as a student and the fabric often came from clothing she had accidental shrunk in the wash. The 'carcasses' are suspended and rotate along a runner so they are viewed from all angles and are redolent of a fashion show.  These pieces are rich, sumptuous and equally compelling and horrifying just like real carcasses. 

“I grew up in Argentina during time of dictatorship, so these works for me are made with political intention to denounce the influence of that dictatorship on the female body,”
