CASSILS

Heather Cassils (?). Canadian artist.
I have never hidden my interest in body-art, a sector of contemporary art that I have always loved because everything revolves around the most beautiful object of which an artist can dispose: the human body. The artist claims to use her body as a medium and up to this falls perfectly within the category of body-art, but the exploration of genders plays a crucial role because the artist is transsexual. This fact does not effect other than to attract many scoundrels, mostly related to the entertainment world; the perverse logic is always the same: fools are always attracted by monsters. Of course all this is to the detriment of any cultural message conveyed by the artist herself, assuming that there is.
