Lava stone beads, golden threads
6m X 4m X 4m

Inspired by volcanic eruptions and cosmic explosions, Xiaojing Yan suspends thousands of beads of lava stone on golden thread to create Nebula, an installation that evokes interstellar space. Just as volcanic activity destroys landscapes only to create new, fertile land, and the collapse of astronomical clouds leads to the birth of new stars, Yan’s installation represents the moment where all past experiences collide to form a burst of infinite possibilities.
