'Handheld,' disturbing skin sculptures by Jessica Harrison

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 08, 2013
Edinburgh-based artist Jessica Harrison's collection of sculptures titled Handheld seem to be made out of real flesh, skin and hair.

The resulting sculptures are a collection slightly disturbing and creepy furniture that should be in a PETA anti-leather ad.
