Body parts out of context are creepy. You know… hair in the shower, a peeling blister. That is the feeling projected in this strange series of work that appears as if it were made from the fresh skin of a human being.
The ‘Handheld‘ series by Jessica Harrison depicts doll-sized household furniture that looks like its made from flesh… hair and all. In the collection you will find weird renditions of chairs, clocks, tables and pillows. The work explores ideas of objects and space and their relationship to our everyday life.
I cant help but shiver when looking at the skin-sofa. Sitting on a leather couch will never be the same again.
