Fabulous serial killer chic from artists Victor Ivanov and Lewis G, who have created a onesie made of raw chicken flesh! Quick: Somebody tell Cara Delevingne! The two have parading around the streets of London, showing off their fashion flair in a street-art experiment that’s “making a statement about our vanity-driven culture.” Mmmkay.
In an interview with Art Map London, the [Ivanov] described the difficulty involved in making an gimp suit out of raw chicken skin. He said: ‘Originally I started using flesh at university, as more of a way to experiment with biodegradable matter. ‘It’s a little crass because obviously it’s a very direct approach to interpreting our environment but nonetheless something that I want to experience first hand.
When I first did it, it was really quite a horrible experience because just the feeling of piercing the flesh, you know it’s wrong and you imagine it being alive and you doing that.'(via Daily Mail)
As well as the live performance, the men have now created a line of products using the chicken skin print that includes flip flops, shower curtains, mugs, iPhone covers, and baby dummies. Big fans can even cover their whole home in chicken skin as there is also a range of chicken skin wallpaper, duvet covers and cushions. Anyone who wants to try involved in the project will also be able to print out a chicken skin print from the artists’ website.
And most fabulous of all? This ’80’s-style excercise video:
