visceral forms by lauren berkowitz at utopian slumps. berkowitz imagines the topography of the body’s interior structures. these cavities and spaces are imbued with psychological resonances and conflicting sensations of comfort and apprehension. elements of surrealism inform her eccentric spaces, in which cells, capillaries and organs are magnified to absurd proportions. offcuts from yellow, white, red and pink leather cricket balls are combined with hairy threads to create sensuous and richly tactile surfaces that accumulate into immersive and emotive environments.
