Julie Laffin

USA

Julie Laffin is a performance installation artist whose work centers around the theme of ‘the dress’, and notions of the perceived excesses of femininity. She often constructs and wears overly large gowns in public places, forcing the viewers to negotiate their relationship to her. A three-time award winner of the Illinois Arts Council grant, she has performed internationally.

Artist Orange

Just as a performance artist uses their body as their medium, this is a fragrance composed entirely of the orange tree: fruit, leaves, bark, roots, and flowers. Artist Orange performs itself.
