This knitted rectum is the seventh and final knitted anatomy/chakra piece from my Hopsital Room installation. Stay tuned for installation images coming soon, as well as images from the rest of my show at Canal Gallery.
Ben Cuevas is a Los Angeles based interdisciplinary artist whose work spans a wide range of mediums including installation, sculpture, fiber, photography, video, performance, and sound. Often incorporating several of these elements into any given piece, he makes use of digital media as a means of documentation. In light of its pluralistic qualities, he sees his work as a reflection on the condition of embodiment, which begs the question: what does it mean to have a body, to inhabit a body, to be a body incarnated in, and interacting with, this world?
