Scar Tissue By Fiona Hall – Made Entirely From Knitted Video Tape
Scar Tissue, made entirely from knitted video tape, includes children’s toys, a golliwog, a bear, Mickey Mouse, along with body parts. The viewer’s memory and role is emphasized: who has not seen a multitude of such toys in recent television news footage, whether pathetically abandoned in war, placed at motor accident sites, or, more bizarrely, used in ritualized public mourning, such as that for Princess Diana? One is now haunted continuously, on a daily basis.
