Read about this show over at Wired and I am going to try and
stomach see it – for now head here to see more images. I have a feeling this show may be a but too ‘art student shocking show for the sake of it’ for my style but I will reserve judgement until I have seen it.
The neurodegeneration of Alzheimer’s patients, the HIV virus and Chernobyl’s botanical mutations are just some of the topics explored in GV Art’s latest exhibition, entitled Trauma.
Andrew Krasnow’s Hollow Muscle is a sculpture of a heart made out of human skin. He was inspired by the fact that his father suffered three major heart attacks. As a child in the 1960s, the artist would place his head on his father’s chest that was criss-crossed with scars. There are also lithograph prints of the piece on show.
