Justin Fitzpatrick: Vegetal Hand (2022) (Right hand)

£150.00

Produced as part of Justin Fitzpatrick: Alpha Salad, January 2022 - May 2022 at The Tetley

This work is loosely based on an 18th century ivory back scratcher, a very rudimentary prosthesis to extend the capacity of the body. Instead of the mutual reciprocity of ‘You scratch my back I scratch yours’ the object suggests the solitary need to self soothe.

Painted urethane, brass wire, red macramé cord

Approx. 53x10x3cm. 200g. Fixtures provided for wall mounting. 

Edition of 10. 5 Left hands. 5 Right hands
