Straight Jacket Star Jumps Alex Chinneck

To complement the external installation of A bullet from a shooting star by Alex Chinneck, NOW Gallery will house Straight jacket star jumps, a 21-metre-long curled up pylon opening 19 September. The work creates a physical and material tension between the object and the glass space in which it stands. Like a ship in a glass bottle, the wound-up pylon defies logic to fit within the 7-metre-high space, coiling under apparent tension to fit within the room.

Both installations defy logic through structural deception by presenting the same object in a very different way: A bullet from a shooting star is outstretched and confident whereas Straight jacket star jumps is reserved, recoiled and contained.
