Abijanac is a highly acclaimed sculptor whose work deals with her personal struggle with cancer. She creates digital drawings and paper or fiber sculptures that explore the systematic development of cancer cell metastasis in the human body. These meticulous studies become three-dimensional forms in space, safely removed from the human body.
