What to do with a placenta, part 2 --> Placenta as fabric

While roaming the interweb reading about the variety of things women do with placentas, I came across the work of artist Pinar Yolacan on the blog My Love For You.

In 2007, Pinar Yolacan created a series of 22 photographs of Afro-Brazilian women from an island off the coast of Brazil called "Maria". The clothing the women are wearing was created with a combination of fabric and the placenta of animals bought at a local Brazilian market.

You can read her artist statement for the series here.

You can check out other work by Pinar Yolacan on her website. 

Her series titled "Perishables" is stunning.
