Baccarat was originally a suburb of the city of Deneuvre which has Roman origins. The name Baccarat comes perhaps from Bacchi-ara "Altar of Bacchus" which was the name of a Roman castellum of which there remains a relic called the Tower of Bacha on the heights of Deneuvre. The Castellany belonged to the Diocese of Metz. A suburb formed at its foot: The name Baccarat appeared for the first time in In the city was best known for its drapers as well as wine. Louis XV authorized the creation of a glassworks in at the instigation of the Bishop of Metz who was anxious to sell the important local production of firewood.

A glassworks named Antoine Renaut responded to the authorisation. The works became a crystal glassworks in and was sold to the Compagnie des Cristalleries in subsequently achieving worldwide fame under the name of Baccarat.

The growing number of workers enabled the development of the commune with the construction of housing, schools, shops, roads, and small industries but the war marked a halt to this development. On the eve of the First World War the city was home to the 20th Batailion of Foot Chasseurs at the Haxo barracks - some buildings of which remain today.

Although ORLAN is best known for her work with plastic surgery in the early to mids, her work is not limited to a particular medium.

About her importance in art history as a body artist, in "The Narrative" monograph Real body and imaginary body, lived body and emotional body, mystic body and social body, diffuse body and hybrid body, all merge together in the ceaseless flow of references in ORLAN's work.

In the "MesuRages," and in later work, Orlan made great use of her " Trousseau ". The sheets from her trousseau a set of household goods and other items traditionally provided to a young woman by her family upon her marriage were re-purposed by ORLAN in a number of projects.

In this series, she posed naked in various yoga-like positions. Outside the Grand Palais, a life-size photo of her torso was turned into a slot machine. After inserting a coin, one could see it descending to the groin, and then was awarded a kiss from the artist, who stood on a pedestal behind it.

In , she created "Documentary Study: The motto of the performance was Freud's quotation on the Head of Medusa, "at the sight of the vulva, even the devil runs away. The Reincarnation of Sainte-ORLAN, a new project that started in , involves a series of plastic surgeries through which the artist transformed herself into elements from famous paintings and sculptures of women.

As a part of her "Carnal Art" manifesto, these works were filmed and broadcast in institutions throughout the world, such as the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris and the Sandra Gehring Gallery in New York. ORLAN picked these characters, "not for the canons of beauty they represent Instead of condemning cosmetic surgery , ORLAN embraces it; [16] instead of rejecting the masculine, she incorporates it; and instead of limiting her identity, she defines it as "nomadic, mutant, shifting, differing.

I see myself all the way down to my entrails; a new mirror stage I can see to the heart of my lover; his splendid design has nothing to do with sickly sentimentalities Darling, I love your spleen; I love your liver; I adore your pancreas, and the line of your femur excites me. In "Le baiser de l'artiste" there were two faces. One could buy a five francs church candle and I was sitting on the other side behind the mock-up of the vending machine.

One could buy a French kiss from me for the same amount of money one could buy a candle. The idea was to play on the ambivalence of the woman figure and the desire of both men and women towards those biblical and social stereotypes.

Since , ORLAN has been creating a digital photographic series titled "Self-Hybridizations," where her face merges with past facial representations masks, sculptures, paintings of non-western civilizations. So far, three have been completed: Pre-Columbian, American-Indian and African. In , she orchestrated a series of filmic posters, "Le Plan du Film," with various artists and writers. The posters affirm the existence of films which do not actually exist.

The posters question the notions of character and narrative reflected in the social reality of individual roles and stories. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article is about the performance artist. For the series of Russian space suits, see Orlan space suit.
