Skin is a fascinating organ of our body. A couple of years ago a group exposition from the Association of Artists in Wageningen was titled HUID (Skin). The artists were asked to shed light on the theme based on their own medium. Petra choose to enlarge little pieces of skin as if they were seen under a microscope. With a sense of humor she sometimes refers to the word that is used for a type of skin, with other sculptures she shows us how she imagines the type of skin could look like if enlarged.
This piece of skin is pierced by hair. The result is Unwanted Hair Growth.
The size of the sculpture is 30 x 21 x 18 cm.
