Reem Gibriel is a Libyan-American artist and graduate of the University of Michigan School of Art & Design's MFA program. For her thesis project, Gibriel fashioned amphorae out of clay and fabric that were designed to slowly disintegrate within the timeframe allotted to two exhibits: "metAmphore" in the Slusser Gallery Lounge, and "Personae," at the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology. Gibriel's amphorae are shaped in a manner that recalls mummies and mummification, and are seen as metaphors for victims of war and genocide around the world.
