DISTINGUISHED ARTIST SERIES
WITH TAMARA KOSTIANOVSKY
ONLINE ARTIST TALK AND DEMONSTRATION
MARCH 26 & 30, 2024

As a part of our Distinguished Artists Series, JRACraft features fiber artist Tamara Kostianovksy.

Argentine raised Tamara Kostianovsky creates colorful, fleshy sculptures out of discarded textile and clothing inspired by animals and abattoirs alike. The discovery of a world concealed behind the skin took form in her adolescence while working at a surgeon’s office. A fascination with these encounters put the body at the center of her work, allowing Kostianovsky to use this imagery to reflect on consumption, ecology, and the voracious needs of the body.

Her work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions at El Museo del Barrio, NY (2007 and 2019); The Jewish Museum NY (2009); Bienal Sur, Buenos Aires, Argentina (2019); Musee du Textile et de la Mode, Cholet, France (2021) and many more. ​
