Sophie Cave: Floating Heads

Walk into the stately Victorian Kelvingrove Art Gallery and you’ll be confronted with a truly unique site: countless floating heads in a myriad of expressions, by Sophie Cave.

I would love to walk under this series of sculpted apparitions. Are they the ghosts of former reactions that took place in the front hall?

These expressive masks are fascinating because they capture a single moment in time, usually fleeting in real life. Faces are forever transforming as we navigate our daily existence…except here.

Apparently some people find the faces unnerving, perhaps because these moments are so rarely frozen and de-contextualized. I happen to think they are fantastic.
