A performed making by Tabitha Moses. A limb-form is pierced by innumerable entomological pins which track and form the spread of psoriasis. Each pin prick is a locus of pain but it is also a venting; a liberation of buried trauma.

itchy and prickly painful is part of a body of work which considers the skin as a threshold between psychological pain and its physical manifestation. The title is taken from an interview with a psoriasis sufferer.

Tabitha Moses makes art about people’s lives, most recently her own. She won Liverpool Art Prize 2013 with work based on her experience of infertility and IVF.
