Stigma Under the Dermis - Antons and Rasa, 2021

€1000

Silicone, human hair


A neighbors fragment of leg, and a friends elbow made in silicone. His “64” and hers shell tattoo replaced with human hair in the same pattern. The series consists of flesh-like silicone pieces casted from the members of living models, with tattoo ink replaced by manually implanted human hair, thereby maintaining a hyperrealist similarity with the original. Through skin, hair and tattoo this show explores a certain attitude towards the human body and the stigmas that surround it.
