Creepy Human Skin Sculptures by Francesco Albano
Francesco Albano is a courageous artist indeed. The Turkish sculptor has dedicated his creative energy to really grotesque and marvelous realistic sculptures of human bodies melting, hanging, dripping down or being distorted in wicked and horrific ways.
In his most recent solo exhibition, called “On The Eve,” the artist presented his new sculptures. They seem like creatures, not necessarily of human descent, had shed their skin and run away. The draped boneless skin bags, without faces or any other signs of identity, create a truly unsettling view. However, the artist isn’t just out to shock the public – he aims to draw our attention to the societal pressure and psychological violence related to our own bodies.
Let’s check our thresholds of fright, shall we?
