Patricia Piccinini
The Comforter

2010

About

Medium: silcone, fiberglass, steel, fox fur, human hair, clothing Hypertrichosis, colloquially called werewolf syndrome, is a condition marked by extreme hairiness. The Comforter is composed of two elements: a girl with hypertrichosis who cradles a creature that Piccinini based upon a genetically modified cow’s udder. In this piece, natural genetic variation is juxtaposed with a completely artificial creature. Which element of the sculpture is more disturbing? This piece asks us to consider how we react to difference, aberration and beauty. On another level, this piece is about the role of the outcast, and the fortitude that grows out of a compassionate interrelationship.
