eliza bennett embroiders a self-inflicted sculpture into her flesh. using her own skin as a canvas, british artist eliza bennett has realized a self-inflicted sculpture, woven into the palm of her hand. When did this go from "crazy person action" to "art"?
Eliza Bennett used her own skin as a canvas by embroidering woven into the palm of her hand. “By using the technique of embroidery, traditionally employed to represent femininity and applying it to the expression of it’s opposite, I hope to challenge the preconceived notion that ‘women’s work’ is light and easy.”
The artist becomes the artwork in this new piece by Eliza Bennett called “A Woman’s Work Is Never Done.” Using the palm of her hand as her canvas, Bennett stitched the top layer of her skin with colorful thread aiming to create the image of an incredibly work-worn hand
