katharina grosse: just two of us
metrotech commons, downtown brooklyn
now  through september 14th, 2014

 

 

‘just two of us’ is the latest installation by german artist katharina grosse for metrotech commons in downtown brooklyn, new york. the immersive sculpture transforms the existing park plaza into an engaging architectural landscape, characterized by towering, vibrantly-colored forms piercing the earth. eighteen fiberglass-coated shapes have been configured around trees, creating two large irregular formations within the existing environment. the neon-chroma serves as a manifestation of the cultural dynamism of the eclectic, multi-cultural neighborhood and reconfigures the urban space into an striking sculptural intervention. ‘just two of us’ is presented by the public art fund whose focus is on art in the public sphere. the artwork, and it’s relationship to the space is iterated by nicholas baume, public art fund director & chief curator: ‘katharina grosse’s hybrid approach to painting and sculpture feels very natural in the context of a public space at the center of a thriving urban area where culture, technology, and innovation intersect.’
