Reaching An Ulterior Realm

2010-14

Glass is used in Manousis’ sculpture as a vehicle to engage reflection both physically and metaphorically in the viewer. She uses the intrinsic material properties of glass as a medium to “create installations that speak of taste, personal memory and the passage of time.” Reaching an Ulterior Realm consists of three Mylar balloons suspended on a wall, which look to be easy targets for the bronze arrows propelled towards them. They are playful while also being a metaphor for the fragility of life. Blown Glass, Mirror, Bronze x3 16”x16”x8” approx
