To Drape 2008 (detail)
Bad Hair Day, Milking and To Drape were produced at L'H du Siège in Valenciennes, France, where Elpida was an artist in residence from October 2007 to January 2008.
Each work was made out of an individual cow stomach. Cows have four stomachs, and these ones were carefully sourced, cleaned, preserved and stitched together into grotesque yet intricate forms.
