'Aurum' is a sculptural installation that acts as a fountain, while water spurting out of bronze nipples and collected with a womb-like tank. The breast’s areola comes from the word ‘aurum’, meaning gold in Latin. Some call the first milk a mother produces ‘liquid gold’. Nursing your child is often underrestimated, considered something that should happen behind closed doors. With ‘Aurum’, I aim to celebrate breastfeeding as an integral part of the early development of humankind.
