Ramiken Crucible presents an exhibition by Eli Ping. Cast in bronze, small rectangular works depict a set of delicate membranes interrupted by seams of irregular stitches and wrinkles, suggesting a tightened surgical repair frozen in an unhealed state. The resulting distortions form puckered navels and taut orifices, revealing forces exerted beneath the surface, like currents in deep water.
