Sabrina Horak, who grew up in between the cultures of Japan and Austria, creates mandala-like partially three dimensional compositions, through which she explores the relationship between the man-made “utopia” that arise from urban life, and the people who live within these artificial constructs.
Separated human limbs are reconstructed into an unfamiliar form, in which Horak carefully cuts out from wood. In addition, She applies luminescent colours that make the overall form look as if it is a floating organ.
