Today: Beige objects stretched over human forms

A photograph of sculpture by Janine Antoni. The work is made from rawhide and looks as if the rawhide is fabric draped over the form of a person crawling on their hands and knees.

A photograph of a sculpture by Hannah Levy. The sculpture is of a nickel-plated steel form that curves and stands on what looks like bird talons. Stretched over the form is a beige colored silicone object that resembles a sleeveless dress.
