Skin in Progress (2003-04), Sarah Maloney

Glass beads, nylon thread, steel armature; life size

“Skin, a piece I have been working on, on and off, for nine years. It is a life size woman’s skin made from approximately 400,000 tiny glass beads and nylon thread; it hangs from the ceiling like a garment on molded acrylic shoulders. It was incredibly labour intensive to make as each bead could only be added one at a time. The process by which the piece was constructed speaks to the labour and seeming invisibility of women’s work as well as the way in which bodies are built from conception right through life cell by cell. There is no head as this is not a portrait but much more of a kind of garment that perhaps the viewer could visualize being worn. The ‘shed’ skin has a reptilian reference that ties into ideas about Eve, the serpent and the awareness of nakedness that came with knowledge from the forbidden fruit, linking it to paradise and the garden which is how I see it as relating to my more recent flower based work.”

Shrink (1995), Lawrence Malstaf

"Two large, transparent plastic sheets and a device that gradually sucks the air out from between them leave the body (in this case the artist himself) vacuum-packed and vertically suspended. The transparent tube inserted between the two surfaces allows the person inside the installation to regulate the flow of air. As a result of the increasing pressure between the plastic sheets, the surface of the packed body gradually freezes into multiple micro-folds."
