untitled / column, 2008October, 2008
Laugh Now, Cry Later was a group show curated by Anna Daly in 2008, at Victoria Park Gallery, Abbotsford.
The column was formed using blown glass elements, cut and recombined in a vertical format where each body of glass rests upon (or within) the one below.
The entire system was suspended from a steel beam within the ceiling of the gallery space, and consists purely of nylon fishing line netting and glass… the netting knotted to support the combined weight of the glass from the beam above.
Only a single piece rests on the floor, physically unconnected to the gravity-defying chain of forms above it.
