Labrovic sells his skin for cheap

Abstraction, 2010 triptych

“Abstraction: An artist selling his skin for cheap”, 2010 is a pseudo-painting by Croatian artist Sinisa Labrovic – in the form of a triptych - representing a homage to the abstract art and avant-garde(s) of the 20th century. The homage is nevertheless realistic and to the extent possible - real. A square, triangle and circle, applied to white canvas, are made of the artist’s skin that was surgically removed, cured and then used to make the three geometric shapes which were then, each individually, put on canvas.
