Kembra Pfahler - Various

Kembra Pfahler is an American artist and body activist born in 1961 mixing performances music and transgressive actions. She was (and said to be) very influenced by the 70's Viannese actionism movement (people such as Günter Brus, Otto Mühl, Hermann Nitsch and Rudolf Schwarzkogler, funny that this movement consisted mainly in males when during the last 30 years women largely represent the majority of this exhibition approach of art and political action). She's also the lead singer and performer of a band called The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black. The pictures above are a mix of various performances providing a little bit of her visual universe. Note that she doesn't fear to mutilate herself in an apparent happy mood. Below, some videos from her (notably a subject on her) and from
the band.
