A Head Above

Scottish artist Sophie Cave is currently showing over fifty floating heads in an exhibition at the Kelvingrove Museum in Glasgow. The disembodied noggins portray faces with a gamut of expressions and emotions as they hang amidst the backdrop of a post Victorian mansion. The heads are completely white, but are lit so that their expressions are accentuated giving the installation a somewhat spooky feel. The heads bring to mind memories of The Haunted Mansion at Disneyland.
