Affective installation of theatrically-lit ceramic and glass chandeliers (one, bomb-like breasts; another, womb-like cowry shells), sculptures, and two videos. One of the two figurative works is composed from vessels and suggests forced labor; the show is beautifully crafted and wholly discomfiting.
