By Steve Dilworth [British, b. 1949]
1979/ Human skeleton, heart, liver, meat, horsehair, seagrass

Steve Dilworth emphasized the transitional nature of death in this artwork. The body, it’s skeleton, organ and flesh bound up in sea grass like a cacoon, appears as if halfway through a transformation. The artist considers this sculpture an exploration of a natural process, and kept it in his studio for many years before finally agreeing to sell it to Richard Harris in 2011..
