Grotesque

“The grotesque body is open, protruding, extended, secreting body, the body of becoming, process, and change. The grotesque body is opposed to the Classical body which is monumental, static, closed, and sleek…” (From The Female Grotesque: Risk, Excess and Modernity by Marry Russo, 64-65)
