Vivisectionary HC (2019 FB) A Convocation of Biological Art comic books
Kate Lacour's Vivisectionary is a feast of single page images illustrating marvelous physiological mysteries through a series of diagrams and tableaux. Scientific charts alternate with raw imagery, where hummingbirds can be parasites, where feces can be transformed into brain tissue or gemstones. Part comic art, part textbook, Vivisectionary blends sex, religion, science, and body horror, with an eye to the sublime and the grotesque.
