Human Skin Rug

The Chrissy Skin Rug resembles an animal fur rug (or a slaughtered blow-up doll) and has a personal connection with the artist, Chrissy Conant. Yes, this is a very controversial piece of art, but why should bears get the only attention in living rooms?

Chrissy Skin Rug represents my relationship to my parents. The rug is a silicone rubber cast of my bare skin. I position myself as a human rug on a wooden floor with an open mouth and eyes that gaze suggestively upward. Parental influences from childhood continue to suppress me, long after I have grown up and they have gone.”

This is definitely the most disturbing rug ever!
