Back in May, I won a couple tickets to the opening of Skin: the Seduction of Surface exhibit at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. The event was amazing; sipping stiff cocktails, munching on popcorn and chatting with lovely people. We stayed upstairs mingling for the beginning of the evening, awaiting the speeches introducing the collection and then moseyed downstairs to take a peek. It did not disappoint. I loved the various ways in which "skin" was interpreted and variety between each of the pieces. 

Without a doubt the main attraction of this exhibit is Jana Sterbak's Vanitas: Flesh Dress for an Albino Anorectic. This piece is reconstructed each time it is shown. It is created from 50 pounds of raw flank steak that is stitched together and hangs on a dress form. Over the course of the exhibit the heavily salted meat will cure, drastically altering the appearance of the work. I definitely plan on stopping in before the completion of the show to get a peek at the transformed piece. 

I've included a couple snapshots below, but nothing that shows the extent of the exhibit by a longshot. This is definitely a show you don't want to miss!
