The liquid glass is blown into various shaped and sized birdcages serving as the moulds for this process. Once the housings for colorful birds, the cages have transcended into objects and containers, where new life has been blown into them. The objects are a result of the interaction of the hot fluid glass with the moulds: the final pieces carrying the marks and history of both their former existences. The project questions the status of confinement versus refuge. A cage can be conceived as imprisonment or a shelter for comfort. The glass works subtly capture this essence of limitation, protection and custody in an imaginative fashion.
GALA FERNANDEZ (Spanish born, México City based) has her show debut in London with the project OUT OF THE CAGE, which is an experimental glass-blowing project realized with glass-blowers manufacturer NOUVEL Studio in México City.
