5633685Specimens from an Imaginary Voyage
DateMonday 1st January 2018 to Sunday 1st April 2018
DescriptionThis new commission by internationally-renowned Danish glass artist Steffen Dam seduces viewers into believing the glass cylinders contain real three-dimensional marine creatures. But this is an illusion. The blown-glass forms are not scientific replicas of anything found in nature; they come from Dam's own biological universe. This piece was inspired by Percy Sladen's historic collection of starfish and sea urchins and the gallery it stands in. This commission has been supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, Art Fund and Friends of RAMM.
