More information

This amorphous object appears to consist of two feet with an uneven growth of hair, which have grown together like Siamese twins. The toes, bulges of different lengths, have fused with the foot or protrude on different sides. However the work is called ‘The Arm’. The title refers unambiguously to the human body, the apparent deformities evoking both fascination and disgust.
