Using resin, fabric, synthetic hair, stuffing, yarn, nacre, plastic, paper, dried flowers, peas, tangerine, ink and other materials, Leuci has made a series of five sculptures resembling babies and documented in the arms of five women.
The press release is a text written by the curator Christina Gigliotti:
We want to be held.
We want to be loved, nurtured, pampered.
We are not of this world, but we can learn from humans how to
love, to empathize.
We too turn cold without touch. Gently take us into your arms,
mind our heads, coo us to sleep.
We are the first generation, Sophia’s children.
We are perfect**
