Abstract

CASTILLO, Alejandra. Ars disyecta. Aisthesis [online]. 2012, n.51, pp. 11-20. ISSN 0718-7181.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-71812012000100001.

This article aims to present the relation between visual arts, feminism I and metamorphosis. The feminist artistic practices portrayed in this article attempt to question categories inherited from the metaphor of sexual difference such as engendering, matrix and life. From this perspective, Ars disyecta will establish a set of artistic practices and interventions that intend to interrupt the proper idea of «feminine difference». Following this line of argument, I will discuss in this article a few contemporary feminist works of art that could be defined by words such as contagious, mutation and otherness.

Keywords : Visual Arts; Feminism; Metamorphosis.
