SAN JOSE, CA.- From August 24 – November 2, 2007, the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art ( ICA ) will showcase Fallen in the gallery’s 560 South First Street window. Fallen is part of the ICA’s “Night Moves” installation series, an innovative program that gives the ICA a nighttime presence and animates the downtown cultural landscape by showcasing after-dark programming in the gallery’s windows.

In this window installation titled, Fallen, by Jennifer Brandon, a grid of transparent resin bricks glows with fluid forms of birds suspended inside of them. Each of these fragile creatures is hand-made by the artist out of tissue paper and thread. When set inside the glassy resin blocks, these bird-like objects quietly float, as if frozen in the midst of a fall. In all her work, Brandon examines the vulnerability and beauty of things when they begin to age. With careful attention to marred surfaces, residue and worn-down appearance, Brandon looks at how objects are metaphors of the human experience. In Fallen, Brandon provides an opportunity to closely examine the birds and allow their vulnerability to become our own, as they are caught between movement and stillness, beauty and decay.
