Mgbore Okore is finishing her MFA in sculpture at the University of Iowa. Okore's work, which often employs ordinary magazine paper, brings a critical focus to bear on American consumer culture. She often utilizes materials which are disposed of in the United States, but are considered usable commodities in her native Nigeria,. Her work highlights our wastefulness with beautiful, graceful forms made of materials which Americans discard.
