auroras is pleased to present our first multiple series in collaboration with Daniel Albuquerque. The series of four works in bronze features fragments of the body: an ear, a nose, two nipples and a glans. Although these are works that have already appeared in the artist's production with other materials, this is the first time that the edition is carried out in bronze with colored patina. 

The works are presented in our Project Room, where the artist has arranged the series in a line covering the entire space. The project's title borrows the name of the famous song by Britney Spears “Piece of me”. Like the music, this series of works has a strong erotic connotation, thinking about the dissemination of “pieces” of the artist.
