Anna Berry: Breathing Room

Free event


Breathing Room is a new installation that moves - a beautiful and delicate large-scale kinetic artwork that people can move through.

Framed by an intriguing mechanical exterior, the illuminated tunnel-like structure invites audiences to travel through its gently moving interior for a unique multi-sensory immersive experience. Tens of thousands of paper-like cones line the tunnel and will move as if the structure is breathing, powered by ingenious mechanics, creating an otherworldly experience.

Anna Berry is a UK artist who creates socially and politically-conscious work in non-gallery environments. She enjoys creating large installations and often works with paper and movement.
