Worked hard Hand stitched onto Hand

Eliza Bennett hat sich vor zwei Jahren eine Arbeiterhand auf die Hand gestickt. Ich bin mit der „Krass und Weird“-Kunst zwar weitesgehend durch, finde das hier aber nochmal recht schick in seiner Aussage:

Using my own hand as a base material, I considered it a canvas upon which I stitched into the top layer of skin using thread to create the appearance of an incredibly work worn hand. By using the technique of embroidery, traditionally employed to represent femininity and applying it to the expression of it’s opposite, I hope to challenge the pre-conceived notion that ‘women’s work’ is light and easy.
