Self-Inflicted Sculpture by Eliza Bennett

British artist Eliza Bennett used her own skin as a canvas by embroidering woven into the palm of her hand. This self-inflicted sculpture named “A woman’s work is never done” was made using coloured threads stitched into the thin top layer of skin to create the appearance of a worn work hand. The goal being to “represent the effects of hard work arising from employment in low paid ancillary jobs such as cleaning, caring, and catering” says the artist. Enjoy!
