A Canadian artist (yes Vanessa, there are artists in Canada. Really.) explored this meat dress theme also in the 90's. For her - it was the link between vanity and bodily decay.http://www.snopes.com/politics/arts/meatdress.asp
love the flesh dress! what i like most about it is its wearability and unassuming-ness. the photo is great too. almost like a cindy sherman.thanks for sharing!
