An artist has been walking around London, dressed head to toe in a "gimp suit" made of nothing but chicken skins and thread. Needless to say, he’s been turning quite a few heads.
On the project’s website, FLESH is described as experiment that aims to “examine the relationship between identity and its commodification through social medias.”
“By creating an entity from chicken skin, a commodified object in itself, the artists are then introducing it into the social sphere, both online and offline,” the website reads. “This abnormality creates a stimulus for the general public to interact with, by allowing them to adopt FLESH as part of their cyber identity.”
Over the weekend, the artists posted a new addition to the FLESH project on Vimeo: a thoroughly bizarre and vaguely hallucinogenic exercise video featuring the chicken-suited Burton doing aerobics.
