Hirad Sab's solo exhibition features his recent work titled "Disfigure Refigure," an installation hosted in Broad Art Center. The graduate student's exhibition opened Tuesday and ends Thursday. "Disfigure Refigure" is constructed from laser-cut acrylic sheets and is shaped like a cube, hanging from the ceiling by metal cords. The sheets are laid on top of one another and together form a layered image of a human head. Sab said he wanted to make the head shape as ambiguous as possible. (Niveda Tennety/Daily Bruin)
