Sublime and grotesque at the same time, these installation pieces by British artist Kate MccGwire have a powerful effect on me. I get really skivved out if I look too long, and yet I can’t stop looking.

Even the titles creep me out. Say SLUICE out loud a few times. Your mouth will start to feel dirty.
