La question de l’interspécificité dans l’art corporel féministe.Vers une esthétique femelliste?

Abstract : This article focuses on the crossings of the antispecist and the feminist theories within the artistic practice which approach the issue of interspecificity. This work examines, more exactly, the aesthetic uses of the animal in feminist visual art creation and identifies three problems within these artistic experiences : 1. the question of the practices of the body and the nudity in this performance art which invite to think of the report(relationship) between feminism and the antispécisme (Kira O'Reilly and Miru Kim). 2. The presence of an anti-porn discourse within antispecist feminism that criticizes the analogy between the industry of animal meat and the sexual industry which exploit the female bodies, while feminist artists use this allegory of the animalization of women to create a body of opposition to the regime of patriarchal power and anthropocentrism (Rose English, Kira O’Reilly). 3. The artistic research on hybridization that uses technology to mix species and invent a post-human body (Marion Laval-Jeantet). We postulate that these various modes of political identification with animals among feminist artists, involving new performances with non-human species, contribute to the construction of a femalist aesthetics.
