Miyo Yoshida’s Bodycash 03.06.10

A bit late this but Miyo’s Bodycash project was recently on show as part of the The Catlin Art Prize at the Village Underground in London. A series of resin body parts – “‘Body Cash’ is rooted in the idea of ‘value’ as socially determined ‘worth’. With the organ and tissue market, man establishes monetary amounts for every single marketable item in existence, starting from his own body parts.”

Miyo’s now working towards a Julia Royce show called POSTED, where she will be exhibiting alongside artists including Tracey Emin and Rachel Whiteread. See Miyo’s site for more details http://miyoyoshida.com
