    Exhibition: THE SOCRATES ANNUAL, 2017

    Known but to God: The Dug Up, Dissected, and Disposed for the Sake of Medicine, 2017

    Glass, silicone, steel, epoxy putty, pearls, Swarovski crystals, and whiskey Dimensions vary: 12-15 x 8 x 8 inches each
    These hanging glass sculptures reference show globes, early 20th century symbolic markers for pharmacies and apothecaries, typically hung in the window and filled with colored liquid. Their opulent exteriors belie abject contents: silicone body fragments floating in whiskey, alluding to the appalling history of medical violence inflicted upon black bodies.
