Chrissy Caviar, web site review by Nick Garafola

| December 9, 2002

Artist Chrissy Conant used her ovaries as a medium to createhigh-tech art, and the result is Chrissy Caviar. With a littlehelp from an embryologist and an endocrinologist, Conant haspackaged her embryos in glass jars and labeled them for sale. Sheeven came up with a marketing campaign complete with deli-styledisplay cases, promotional floaty pens, and 'Making ChrissyCaviar,' the DVD. She mocks consumer's desires for luxury itemsand jokes that she hopes that her product will pass Beluga caviaras the current ultimate in luxury. Her exibit will be displayedat New York's Stefan Stux Gallery through January 4th, 2003.
