ORLAN X CAMILLE FOURNET, capsule collection”De corps en corps”, 2023

An eye, a mouth, a nose: “the body is a bag, the body is a suit”. With this new creation, ORLAN becomes part of the leather and flesh of the Camille Fournet house. This encounter enables the artist to break down the ice walls between practices, creating porosities between the visual arts, luxury goods and leather goods.
An international artist, carnal, feminist and always in capital letters, ORLAN has created an exceptional collection for the Maison, featuring fragments of her body in quotations from her landmark work “Se vendre sur les marchés en petits morceaux” (“Selling oneself in small pieces on the market”).

The Jean-Paul Gaultier fashion house is opening a wild casting call, on the Internet, for extras in their Cyber ready-to-wear campaign. ORLAN, who met Monsieur Gaultier at the Asvoff festival, when she was Mistress of Ceremonies, and the designer who presided over the jury, introduces herself like any other person at the casting. ORLAN performs under the creative direction of Florence Tetier in a surreal photo shoot, around a circular table, with fake fluorescent food. Performance, fashion and humor mingle, elements that ORLAN had already exploited in artistic series such as “Femme qui rit”. Surrounded by the best international teams, ORLAN is made up by Isamaya Ffrench and styled by Jawara. An iconic campaign that perpetuates the artist’s taste for porosity between creative disciplines.

“Match Selavy”, This raft (is not) lonely ,


Oostende, Belgium, 2017

Match Selavy was a large-scale public performance organized by Yann Fabre in a soccer stadium in Antwerp. Each of his guests was asked to dress as a character from the history of art. ORLAN dressed as Rose Selavy. When she arrived at the stadium, ORLAN  was surprised to find museum director Bart de Baere with a star-shaped tonsure. They immediately became a “couple” and while everyone else was trying to kick the ball, ORLAN and Bart de Baere were lying on the lawn playing chess on the checkerboard lining of ORLAN’s coat. They also walked limply from goal to goal, separately or arm in arm.

Self-portrait of ORLAN pronouncing the word self-portrait, 2017

ORLAN realized this collaboration with Virgile Novarina in 2017. The result is a photographic series of ORLAN’s vocal spectrum saying the word “self-portrait”. This abstract representation then becomes a self-portrait of the artist.

ORLAN x Brochier Soieries, Carrée de soie, Self-hybridations Masques de l’Opéra de Pékin, Facing Designs and augmented reality n°1, 2016, 90×90 cm

ORLAN and Brochier silks collaborated to create silk scarves based on her series of Self-hybridations of Peking Opera masks, 2014. In this opera, women are outlawed and men play their roles. 

Like the artwork, the scarf serves as a QR code. The customer can scan it and see an ORLAN avatar appear, stepping out of the frame of the work and performing the acrobatics of the Peking Opera. 

You can then take photos of yourself, your friends and your avatar, and send them around the world just like any other selfie.
