Exhibition Description

Jen Highstein constructed three large pieces from milled steel wool which he had salvaged. Each piece contained two standing curved sections connected by a third flat section. The first sculpture’s two vertical elements 6’8″ in height, were connected by a horizontal slab, 15 3/8″ x 21′. The second piece, standing 8′ in height, was connected by a rusted piece lying on the floor spanning 24′. The third piece, 7′ in height and spanning 26′, was considerably wider than the other: it measured 42 1/4″ in girth.
