In the Flesh

2019, latex cast syringes.

36” x 36” x 6”

The plasticity of skin as living flesh is a contemporary idea, formed by medicine and fueled by beauty culture. In the Flesh is inspired by ideas about skin augmentation, and skin consistency. The latex syringes will degrade, yellow, and harden over time. They will individually be replaced by newer grafted versions, creating a patchwork of aging and fresh skins.
