About Installation of  REVEAL

I  became aware of the reflection of my body in a tree in 1983.  It had a tilt in its torso just like mine.  In time and scale it differed.  But I felt deeply connected.  Because the tree was very large and relatively still I could read it by a long, long stare.  Because it had occurred again and again in similar form through these centuries and appears just now in my back field I can count on the fact of its existence.

This installation came about from the combination of seeing John Davis’ amazing horse/carriage elevator shaft and a wondrous enormous hunk of a tree that I have kept for 5 years. By hanging the 15 ft tree between  three floors, it can be seen by looking up, and, it will be seen from  three levels if one climbs the stairs to the floors above. I have cut the tree vertically into five parts. These strips are similar to the basic segmented construction of all trees which can be seen most clearly when they are in early growth, or when struck by lightning, or in late decay. This tree was in none of those states

when it was taken down in full health. It was too tall. It threatened a house. It was cut down. The five vertical parts I have hung slightly apart .  I want to see inside this tree.  I want it to be transparent to me, despite its solidity.  I want to experience the precariousness of its existence as I experience its absolute un-defeatability.  I want to know it is itself.

Gillian Jagger: A Quantum Leap

Stone Quarry Hill Art Park

July 18-August 8, 2010

This exhibition, A Quantum Leap, features a large-scale sculpture entitled “Quantum.”

The piece evolves from Jagger’s past sculptures, often characterized by hanging compositions of rough wood, barbed wire, hooks and chains, and incorporating castings of animal forms. To complement this important sculpture, the Gallery will display a number of Jagger’s exquisite drawings of animals.

In ”Quantum", we experience the evolution of Jagger’s style of sculpture in a large-scale work, displayed in a cave-like environment, that strikes a cord of human response few works of art ever achieve.
