British artist Jessica Harrison created the fleshy sculpture series “Handheld” by extracting the skin off of her own arms and legs and molding them into these wonderfully unsettling mini-furniture pieces.

Just kidding.

The artist made casts of her hands to create synthetic skin material, but the resemblance is uncanny, no?

Moving beyond a bi-directional model, Harrison proposes a multi-directional and pervasive model of skin as a space in which body and world mingle. Working with this moving space between artist/maker and viewer, she draws on the active body in both making and interpreting sculpture to unravel imaginative touch and proprioceptive sensation in sculptural practice.
