In her latest exhibition 'Corrections', Mestrom expands her focus to a subject that has figured prominently in the history of sculpture: the female nude.
This collection of inventive and playful sculptures explores the changing physicality of the female body, inspired by her own pregnancy. Describing her work as ‘playable sculpture’, Mestrom uses concrete, steel, bronze, and clay as a means of exploring a range of subtle (and not so subtle) bodily ‘corrections’.
