This piece combined ten small shark-artificial nail sculptures with audio of four servers/tourist wranglers from a grilled fish stall in Essaouira, Morocco humming the theme song from Jaws. The sculptures were installed throughout the gallery on mini-pedestals and the audio played throughout the space.

Nails by Katrina "The Glam Artist" Waller

Jaws audio performed by Abdu Karim, Mehamed Lirachi, Nourdine Bahous, Rachid Maruoane
