Brooklyn-based artist Paul Branca weaves fragments of the human body with food, alluding to "the sexualized pleasure of eating and consumption." Created during a tumultuous year when listening to one another was particularly crucial, the fragmented ear, presented with a variety of thorny and succulent fruit, is a reminder of the the dually pleasurable and prickly nature of absorbing the world around us.
