Tamara Kostianovsky’s work:

“For the creation of these works I cannibalized my clothes: I used fabrics and textures to conjure flesh, bone gristle and slabs of fat in life-size sculptures of livestock carcasses. My intention is to confront the viewers with the real and grotesque nature of violence, offering a context for reflecting about the vulnerability of our physical existences, brutality, poverty, consumption, and the voracious needs of the body.”
