Tamara Kostianovsky Fashions Butchered Products Using Clothing

Those who have a difficult time staring at raw, uncooked deli meats may have an easier time look at these Tamara Kostianovsky creations. Using clothing from her own wardrobe, Kostianovsky stitches together lifelike recreations of butchered animals. She wants to confront her viewers with grotesque imagery in order to create dialogue about unchecked brutality. The fact that these sculptures turned out so visually gripping is a testament to Kostianovsky’s talent, but it wasn’t her primary objective.

If you were to browse Tamara Kostianovsky’s complete portfolio, you may find yourself recoiling from some of her works. Not every piece is created using dapper duds as she’s used actual, and highly off-putting, deli products as her media. The odd and unabashed appearance of her pieces, sprawled on paper with juices running everywhere, is enough to make a person support veganism.
