Pettican, Anneké, Mojsiewicz, Kristin and Lewis, Chara (2013) The Air which Held Them. [Show/Exhibition]

Solo exhibition and site specific installation.

The installation ‘The Air which Held Them’ features three gigantic, inflatable winged heads that appear to have alighted in Christ Church, Macclesfield from another place. 
The heads reflect the precise measurements of the artists’ heads taken from biomedical facial scans. Their gradual inflation and deflation cycles give the impression of an animated presence in a space that is still, even frozen in time. The scale of the forms recasts the audience in miniature, enabling them to experience the interface between the architecture, the human and the imagination.

Commissioned for Barnaby Festival - funded by Arts Council England (2013)
