Bite me: Performative Body Pieces



This is another body piece from my 'More than myself; these animals in me' collection. It's an electroformed fine silver shark jaw, complete with five sets of silver encased teeth, scary?! The piece can be worn as a headress, with the strap fixing around the back of the head, but it can also be worn in a multitude of other ways... hanging around the neck or off one shoulder, strapped around your thigh... or any other inspired method that comes to you. The overall feeling from this piece could be described as violent, dangerous, viscious, and perhaps other worldly, but you may have your own take on it. How does it make you feel? What will you express when you transform into the shark? Put the mask on, play....
