ABOUT THE INSTALLATION
A series of newly commissioned fire busts of Aberdonian’s that shaped the city
Much of the recent work of pa-BOOM has been with fire. Fire is integrated with sculpture in a variety of ways to create installations for audiences to walk through and interact with. These installations respond to the differing locations when they are presented. People have a deep-seated, elemental fascination with fire, and Hot Heads explores the use of fire and heat as a sculptural medium.
Fire is often used in a spectacular, theatrical way to mark and punctuate performances and finales however, we have relished the opportunity to present a piece of work that uses fire for its own intrinsic qualities, associations and aesthetics, Hot Heads uses fire in a contemplative, subtle, and intriguing way.
