About Nicole Cherubini

Pairing found objects and unexpected bases, Nicole Cherubini leads viewers to reconsider their conception of modern sculpture. From an early interest in Mexican and Turkish ceramics, to a later series of pots composed of furs and chains, her choice of materials often blurs the boundaries separating craft and decor. Cherubini simultaneously references the history of her material and disrupts form and function of fetishized objects in society.

American, b. 1970, Boston, Massachusetts, based in Brooklyn, New York
