Different hanging techniques

These two artworks have used very different hanging techniques to display lots of little pieces.

Flower, 2008, Valeria Nascimento, in production
  • Each vitrified piece of ceramic is stuck onto a nail using glue
  • Each nail is hammered into a piece of backing board which will then be hung on the wall. The nails are left out a little so the pieces seem to be floating from the wall.
Flock, 2003, John Butler, Jonna Behrens, Anne Jamison, Debbie Metherell
  • Each piece has a hole in so a nail can hammer it into the wall.

Neither of the ways these artists hang their work is an option for me as I want them to sit flat against the wall and the nails to not be showing through the work.
