Embroidered Anatomy-Bears

Deborah Simon baut ausgestopfte Fake-Bären aus künstlichem Fell und Zeugs und bestickt sie mit Bären-Innereien. Nice!

new york-based artist deborah simon walks the line between taxidermy and toy, fabricating a series of faux-bear sculptures that materialize their vulnerability to human-initiated adversity. the three species are meticulously crafted from clay, imitation fur, and embroidery tools, and hold near perfect proportions and facial likenesses to their living counterparts. influenced by the evolutionary process and biological classifications, simon crafts an embellished coat for each species — wearing it rather than their own — ornamented with intricate organ systems hand-stitched to their exterior.
