ABOUT


Funeral is a sculpture consisting of reproductions of household and everyday things. The base of the sculpture is a monumental can of sardines, enlarged to six feet in length. A floral arrangement, assembled from pastry molds and other crafts, sits on top of the can of sardines. Together, they suggest a scene depicting a Christian burial. Taking a funerary box out of its traditional appearance and religious context, the sculpture draws attention to the ordinary aspects of daily life transformed by grief.
