New Orleans: Kate Lacour at Crescent City Comics
August 24 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm PDT
Join us at Crescent City Comics August 24th at 6 PM for a signing of Kate Lacour’s newest work Vivisectionary!
Kate Lacour’s Vivisectionary is a series of visual sequential experiments in the physiological, the pathological, and the occult. A bizarre and mesmerizing investigation through the marvels of biology and myth to uncover the extraordinary in the ordinary, the magic in science, the sublime in the grotesque. Part art comic, part surrealist textbook, Vivisectionary is a delightfully grotesque mix of the mundane and the macabre.
What if lactating snakes gestated inside fetuses? What if factory-farmed pigs were bred as giant, insentient cubes? What if the human spine generated methamphetamine capsules? These single page sequential images illustrate these and many other marvelous, hideous, enigmatic physiological mysteries. Each comics sequence is stitched together (pun intended) by a narrative thread that forms a strange and mesmerizing voyage through the body.
