Knitted innards and fuzzy cadavers by Candace Couse

Sure, knitting often gets pooh-poohed as a granny pursuit all the time. Which probably makes Canada-based visual artist Candace Couse’s knitted corpses — with innards, organs and guts spilling out and loose red vein-like threads crawling out of them — all the more sweeter. She uses the idea of personal geographies to approach issues like orientation and identity that are profoundly detached from collective knowledge and public geographies.
