Brass Art will exhibit The Air Which Held Them, three gigantic, inflatable winged heads which reflect the precise measurements of the artists’ heads taken from biomedical facial scans. Installed in historic Christ Church above fixed boxed wooden pews their gradual inflation and deflation offers the impression of an animated presence in a religious space that is frozen in time and without
congregation. The scale of the forms recasts the viewer in miniature, enabling them to experience the interface between the architecture, the human and the imagination. Originally commissioned as a prototype by Tatton Park Biennial, a further two of the pieces have been newly commissioned by Barnaby Festival. Brass Art are a collaborative trio of Chara Lewis Anneke Pettican and Kristin Mojsiewicz. Brass Art are represented by The International 3, Manchester and have exhibited widely across the UK and internationally.
