Opium Bed

by Leah Poller

Size: 15x5.5x9.5
Medium: Bronze
Edition Size: 8

Following a studio accident, Poller’s extended bed rest kick-started an incredible study of our relationship with the bed where more than a third of life is spent. In all its visual, literary and narrative forms, Poller uses the bed as a metaphor to capture the full scope of humor, pathos, whimsy, sarcasm, tragedy and passion in 3 dimensions, offering tangible evidence of our shared humanity.
The opium smoker in India, the origin of this Opium Bed, is an authentic 19th century hand-carved opium pipe.
