Regina Jose Galindo is a Guatemalan young artist that uses her body as a media for the transmutation of the human condition (enslaved in a political and sociological environment) in concrete metaphors that question the viewer (the scoptophile since she's often naked, raising a collision between desire and repulsion). I consider she's doing what Lyzane Potvin (see here) is doing with painting and photograph. They are of the same generation and this shows how art is still growing towards more and more mature activism. Personally, I deeply feel myself in empathy with the work of this artist. More to see on her site here.
