"In her sculptures, video works and performances, Madeleine Berkheimer (NL) plays with social conventions from a sexual and erotic perspective, hereby confidently using her own body, challenging the voyeuristic gaze of her audience".
The realism in these sculptures is so stunning, I kept looking to find something that would convince me the leg wasn't real. The veins, wrinkles, skin tone and irritation at the squeezed toes, a few hairs that escaped waxing the leg are very realistic... fascinating and disturbing at the same time.
More legs 'Noire' from another artist: Ana Rito (P).
