Abu Jafar at the GSK (Glaxo Smith Kline) New Frontiers Science Park Harlow, UK start from 24th September till 24 November.
Sculpture ‘Wonder Nature’ by Abu Jafar in collaboration with Ewa Wawrzyniak. This sculpture comprises 7 structures made with plywood, ornamented with blown glass, chicken wire, stones and black lines. (Each structure is 180cm tall, 80cm wide, 30cm deep) It has been placed in the ground like an abstract flying bird wing that allows the public to go through and wonder around each structure in every direction to enjoy the link with the thinking process that excites us. Particularly this sculpture has a sense of finished and unfinished mood that creates a question mark like a jigsaw puzzle.
This sculpture resembles the wing of the sculpture ‘HOPE’ which will be exhibited in 20-21 Visual Arts Centre, Scunthorpe, UK in 2011 has been highlighted in Channel 4’s Big Art Mob web (http://bigartmob.com/latest/).
Every structure signifies metaphorically the letter H for hope, and the window on the structure signifies a window of opportunity driving endlessly forward. This sculpture is about celebrating our ever-changing curiosity of mind and symbolises the beauty that keeps us wonder in every step we make and every angle we look. It is the endless journey to find a betterment of our unknown needs. The journey to in which we are going through our hopes and visions, each day creating a new chapter and looking forward to seeing something more that is undisclosed.
