Nicola Chambers’ work Gaofar (gwee-far, Windy) is driven by the small details in life that are easy to miss. How do you make a sculpture of something that you cannot directly see? When an author describes wind, they may talk about the rustle of the leaves or the sails of a windmill spinning. But while it is all around us, one can only see the effects of it. This sculpture represents wind’s shape and movement. It is conceived as a way to slowly materialise the essence of wind, stripping away as much as possible while still staying true to the core.
