new york based artist orly genger has created ‘whole’, a site-specific installation at indianapolis
museum of art. known for transforming common nylon climbing rope into elaborate monumental
sculptures this is her largest project to date. the installation incorporates thousands of feet of rope,
which genger hand knots, paints and stacks creating immense sculptures. ‘whole’ evokes the
normally intimate processes of knitting and crocheting, yet expands them to a newly epic scale.
shorter sculptures of ‘whole’ are placed on the floor
