Senses

Photo Series

By Monique du Plessis

This work dealt with body dysmorphia and dealing with the sense of feeling uncomfortable in one’s own skin. Which lead me to rethink skin in general, ultimately resulting in a type of skin blanket I created in which I attempted to allow others to feel the same discomfort in my skin which I feel in my own. The skin pieces are all modelled from my own skin and added together to create a visually unsettling piece.
