Artist Chrissy Conant put together this bare skin rug – based on herself. No doubt it’s a talking point at dinner parties.
Art made from rubbish. How droll.
Actually, this is exceptionally clever…
“Six months’ worth of household waste plus a pair of dead seagulls comprise the heap of refuse. It’s no accident that it took the couple a further six months to make the piece, during which time they were eating and consuming – as you do. On the wall, the shadow figure self-portraits of the artists take a break with a cigarette and a glass of wine.”
There are a few more amazing shadow pieces at that link.
These photos of piles of rubbish are also pretty amazing… more for the vast quantity than for clever creative endeavour.
