It’s the season of all things spooky, and real life consistently takes the creepy cake. Maybe this thought occurred to artist Cao Hui when he created a series of fleshy sculptures that look so real, they made my stomach turn. Comprised of resin and fiber, and true to life in size, each piece depicts the viscera, skin and flesh belonging to animals whose lives are regularly sacrificed to produce objects of convenience for human beings. Cao Hui, represented by Lin & Lin Gallery in Taiwan , created a series of hyper realistic sculptures, including a couch and chair, gloves, and a suitcase, all presumably made of leather. But instead of showing the pretty polished pieces of furniture we normally see in shop windows, he exposes the parts of animals sacrificed in order to keep their skin. In so doing, it forces the viewer to think more carefully about the materials used to create every day objects.

Plus, many responsible butchers do use every part of an animal so nothing goes to waste. But factory farming is still very much a blight on the developed world’s collective conscience, and Cao Hui keeps it there with these disturbing, but provocative pieces.
