Barbara Nanning - Moving stillness

In honour of the UN International Year of Glass, Museum JAN presents the exhibition Barbara Nanning – Moving Stillness. The exhibition features the most recent work of glass artist Barbara Nanning (1957). In her three-dimensional sculptures, she always combines tradition and innovation. She has created new, inventive techniques in collaboration with the most experienced glassblowers in the Czech Republic. The innovative architectural and interior design studio Atelier Tomas Dirrix has created a refreshing 3D exhibition design.

In honour of the UN International Year of Glass, Museum JAN presents the exhibition Barbara Nanning – Moving Stillness. The exhibition features the most recent work of glass artist Barbara Nanning (1957). In her three-dimensional sculptures, she always combines tradition and innovation.

Tradition and experiment
In addition to the traditional techniques that form the basis of her artistic practice, experimentation plays a key role in Nanning's work. In all of her work, she tries to find new ways to capture colour and light in the glass. This also applies for her new series Chimaera, a co-production with the Czech grinder Aleš Zvěřina, in which she works with anna green glass. Under ultra-violet light, this green coloured glass has a fluorescent effect in the dark. The sawn and cut facets in the anna green glass create numerous optical effects and add depth to the work. For her latest series Byzantium, Nanning experiments with gilded glass threads that she melts into patterns inspired by Byzantine culture.
