DUU VisArts is hosting an opening reception for Amber Mooers' exhibition in the Brown Gallery: "Un/natural."

Un/natural explores the surreal nature of existing within a human body. Sculptures in clay and wool both reflect and abstract elements of our bodies. I consider my own relationship to my body as I build these pieces by hand, spinning yarn and sculpting the clay into expressions of my own skin, womb, digestive tract, and hair. Once a part of us is amputated or altered, it becomes alien. At what point do we stop recognizing ourselves? Drawing inspiration from practical effects in horror movies, my birth doula training, and stories told by med students involving buckets of skin, these pieces remind us of the sometimes terrifying magic of humanness.
