    Nebula is a collaboration of Opus Art Collective and Xiaojing Yan to create an intimate Nebula for your own personal collection. In the spirit of Xiaojing's large scale installation Nebula, of worlds and experiences colliding and collapsing, this piece has been created to share in the rebirth we are all experiencing, coming out from the cloud of the last two years into a burst of infinite possibilities.

    Inspired by volcanic eruptions and cosmic explosions, Xiaojing Yan suspended thousands of beads of lava stone on golden thread to create Nebula, a six meter high installation exhibited at the Hermès Maison, Shanghai, China in 2019.

    ❛ ‎ Just as volcanic activity destroys landscapes only to create new, fertile land, and the collapse of astronomical clouds leads to the birth of new stars, Yan’s work represents the moment where all past experiences collide to form a burst of infinite possibilities.‎‎ ‎ ❜
