Part of The Artist's Life series
"You can't miss the meaning in Badanna Zack's 40 life-like skulls sculpted out of old newspapers. Here's all the news that's fit to kill."
-Peter Goddard, Toronto Star
Badanna Zack is a Toronto artist who continues to be a vital force on the Canadian scene. Her work amuses and challenges us, whether it's her controversial flying penises or papier-mâché projects ranging from pitch forks, sewing machines and a sow with piglets, to guns, urinals and human skulls. With the detritus of technology a major theme in her work, she has created soft-mould sculptures of Volkswagon Beetles to hang on the wall like carcasses and covered a mound of abandoned automobiles in earth to resemble an archeological dig at a land-fill site.
She shares her thoughts on the artistic process, feminism, the business of art, paying too much attention to theory, and the persistent label she's attracted of "political artist."
