    The soaring, modular forms of Jak Tower 297 epitomize Jackie Ferrara’s innovative sculptural practice. Since the 1970s, she has created precisely stacked structures, carefully developing their shapes and paying careful attention to the material qualities of wood, such as color and grain. With their affinities to pyramids or ziggurats, Ferrara’s sculptures suggest the architecture and monuments of the ancient world while imparting her distinctly contemporary vision.
