Selling Price: $3,000

Artist Statement:

The sculptures titled Borbor are abstracted figures, imagining living bodies as a chaos of bulging tubes. This name is derived from the medical term for digestive noises, “borborygmus,” and the sound of it is meant to suggest the rumbling within the raucous, pulsing structures of life.
