Heart-Sculpture made from human skin

GV Art in London zeigt momentan Ausstellung „Trauma“, Themen sind unter anderem der Zerfall des Gehirns eines Alzheimer-Patienten, der HI-Virus oder die Mutationen in der Botanik um Tschernobyl. Und dann haben sie noch Andrew Krasnows Skulptur eines Herzens aus menschlicher Haut.

Andrew Krasnow’s Hollow Muscle is a sculpture of a heart made out of human skin. He was inspired by the fact that his father suffered three major heart attacks. As a child in the 1960s, the artist would place his head on his father’s chest that was criss-crossed with scars. There are also lithograph prints of the piece on show.
