Jason Jacques Gallery, Booth G05 The last word in isolation chambers just may be uttered from the giant mouth of the Gorgon. Nick Weddell provides a cocoon for people to lie atop the tongue of an alien creature from the imaginary world of Zeefromzeglop. The mouth comes complete with taste buds and rows of teeth line the interior roof. Dozens of eyes that rotate in their sockets sprout from the top of the sculptural furniture. “It’s oddly comfortable,” Weddell said. “I’m really happy in there.”
