ORLAN (born 1947) is a French artist who works with sculpture, photography, performance, video, video games, augmented reality, artificial intelligence, robotics, and scientific and medical techniques to question contemporary social phenomena. Her artistic practice opposes natural, social, and political determinism, male supremacy, religion, and cultural segregation. Always mixed with humor, sometimes with parody or even the grotesque, her work questions and challenges pre-established codes.
