    We Series: Kristan Saloky and Rachel Copel

    $10

SACRIFICING THE CHERRY
There’s something about cherries. Bulbous, blood red, and juicy. A sweet-and-sour fruit with a hard pit in the center–waiting to be popped. Is there a more carnal fruit? In Sacrificing the Cherry, Kristan Saloky and Rachel Copel summon the power of this legendary sex symbol in a sacrifical ceremony that dissects sexuality, gender, and the body.

 

Kristan Saloky is a performance-based media artist. She received her MFA in Fine Art from the Slade School of Fine Art in London, England in 2012. She currently lives and works in Chicago, IL, USA. Working across live performance, video, and photography, her work explores feminine identity, the self, and the body.
