Jeetander Ojha’s 'I Always Remember You' shocks us through its graphic rendering of flayed human skin. The figure represented is not only naked and dead, but has been violently shorn of its insides and hung upside down like a carcass in a butcher’s shop.

Ojha uses latex and human hair to vividly create a deeply disturbing sculpture cast from his own body. The artist made this sculpture after his father’s death, in response to the popular practice of framing photographs of the dead on the walls. By hanging up human skin in place of a benign photograph, Ojha compels us to face the reality of death rather than sentimental representations of the ‘deceased’.
