How do we understand the sculptures which sculptors cast from life?
Second Skin examines the extraordinary products of life casting in a sculptural context. 19th Century examples of life casting, selected from the exhibition A Fleur de Peau at the MusÃ©e d’Orsay in Paris, provide a historical context in which to consider more recent sculptures that reveal how contemporary artists use life casting for their own ends.
With an introduction by Penelope Curtis (Curator of the Henry Moore Institute) and two essays:
Historical Life Casting
Edouard Papet (Musée d’Orsay)
Stephen Feeke (Henry Moore Institute)
