A seam that sutures the biological to the aesthetic I and II

Abstract

A seam that sutures the biological to the aesthetic I and II (fat on paper, 2012) are part of a series of prints made with different fats, oils, and other organic materials that explore the skin as a site and surface of reproduction. The diptych stems from Aliza Shvarts interest in printmaking as an exercise of reproductive capacity, the copy as an index of lost origin, and the seam as an eroticized jointure of historically feminized labor.
