Tamara Kostianovsky’s ‘Actus Reus’

Slaughtered livestock is re imagined with beautiful results from New York City based, Israel born and Argentinian raised artist, Tarara KostianovskyUsing various fabrics and textures from her own clothing, she conjures flesh, bone gristle, and slabs of fat in the life sized sculptures created for her series, ‘Actus Reus’.  Softening the vulgarity of eating meat, she offers a poignant context for ‘the vulnerability of our physical existences, brutality, poverty, consumption, and the voracious needs of the body.’  Great work!
