A Story In So Many Words (#6: 100) – “Dental Gross”

Did you remember to floss?

Everyone who’s anyone agrees that Martina Lubovich’s greatest work of art to date is definitely her small “found object” sculpture entitled “Dental Gross” (with her charming accent, “gross” rhymes with “floss”), currently installed at a small yet very important gallery in Chelsea. As with many significant pieces, this one took quite a long time to complete. Consisting entirely of dental detritus removed via dental floss from between Martina’s teeth during a five-year period of carefully planned binging that led to a substantial (and seemingly permanent) weight gain, it has thus been pressed into the shape of a very small pig.
