A sculptural volume of twisted twine in an art gallery

Intertwined (detail), Gerri Sayler

Sayler creates her works from a variety of materials on-site while interacting with the public. In this case, excess fibers from the twine posed a potential breathing hazard so the artist broke with her usual practice and documented the process in a video which played on a constant loop in the exhibition.
