Breathless // Cornelia Parker // Silver-plated brass musical instruments suspended on stainless steel wire // 2001

Talk about tooting your own horn! I think this work of art is pretty amazing. Suspended in the V&A Museum, Breathless by Cornelia Parker consists of a range of brass instruments hanging  from the ceiling in a spiraling circle. The flattened  instruments come from the British Legion Salvation Army and were all crushed on London’s iconic Tower Bridge. An eery stillness  surrounds this work of art, leaving viewers breathless.
