We’ve featured the incredible embroidery of visual artist Candace Couse before, and she recently took some time to tell Street Anatomy about her new installation piece, titled Waste. Installed in the Basement Gallery in Basel, Switzerland, Candace explains that Waste,
…explores ideas of malady, the body, relationships and loss through the internal, and deeply private realms of the body. Resembling something in between soft and tempting medical charts that beg to be touched, and the cross slices of anatomical studies, these organs form relationships that connect, disconnect and leave wounds in a montage typically reserved for the world beyond the skin.
It’s a beautiful visually interactive piece. Candace succeeds at disjointing yet connecting the body at the same time.
