Milly Aburrow’s uncanny sculptures and installations of the everyday mundane encapsulates the correlation between today’s connotations of food – the slang and theories connected. Exploring foods social commentary. Scrutinizing whether food needs to identify with superfluous associations and the person who eats it. She fabricates artworks engrossed in the sphere of consumerism – both materialistic and nutritious, relatable and ironic. The transformative, conglomeration of the spaces and the individual sculptures, create posed connotations of irony with these notions and objects, challenging the over arching patriarchy of Western society and breaking down outdated stereotypes.
Aburrow’s current work ‘Fill Me In Sandwich Counter’ explores the freedom of choice and personal expression in the constructs of Western Society. Through a playful color palette and a comical stylization she characterizes the parameters of commercialization and our consumerist society that defines a part of everyone’s life.
