Nancy Rubins: Diversifolia

‘Diversifolia’, in case you don’t know, is a scientific term indicating that a single species of plant has a variety of different leaves. Look at Nancy Rubins’ sculptures and, while they may not feature any actual foliage, you get the gist: her bouquet-like structures sprout a range of different animals, cast in metal and held together with tensile cables. Zebras flail; hogs hover mid-air. Crocodiles are caught in flight. Think an explosion in the zoo, frozen in time, basically.
