She discussed Bellmer and Zürn’s sadomasochistic yet artistically stimulating relationship, Bellmer’s Doll, Zürn’s drawings and novels, the Surrealists’ take on mental illnesses, and the recent interest of scholars and curators in female Surrealists, half-forgotten for several decades. Taborska also wrote an essay for the exhibition catalogue.
