Breathing Space exhibit by Jann Nunn
Breathing Space, an exhibition of new large-scale sculpture installations by Sonoma State Professor of Sculpture Jann Nunn, premieres at Mercury 20 Gallery in Oakland, Calif. on July 3 and runs through Aug. 9.
The exhibition's title work, "Breathing Space," is a cascade of thousands of delicate gold-tipped glass pipettes supported by an internally illuminated stainless-steel structure that literally appears to breathe. Commanding a central position in the exhibition, "The Time Fallen Bodies Take to Recover," contemplates the process of physical and spiritual transformations in the face of loss and love. Fifty stainless-steel ripples hover overhead while disused crucibles anchoring the gallery floor endeavor to capture rivulets of falling glass.
