Public Art...


Art at large on the streets. Here, some examples of urban art and how passersby react to it...
Untitled, by Tatiana Trouvé (2014)
Materials: metal, paint, wood, ink, ropes / Measures: 73 x 205 x 105 cm
Central Park New York
Italian artist Tatiana Trouvé (1968) created an intricate installation, actually on display on one of the side streets of New York's Central Park. It's a group of gigantic wooden reels with ropes of different colors. Each one represents one of the many paths in the Park, while the length of the ropes is equal to the length of each track. The choice of color was Trouvé's personal decision, pretty much the same way we freely choose which track to walk through. 
Spoonbridge and Cherry, by Claes Oldenburg (1988)
Materials: enameled stainless steel and aluminium / Measures: 9 x 15.7 x 4.1 m
Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, Walker Art Center, Minneapolis
Once again in this blog, we'll memtion this artwork by Claes Oldenburg (Sweden, 1929): a spoon that is actually a bridge and skating track and which holds, with extreme equilibrium, a cherry. The curve of the spoon keeps direct relation with that of the cherry and its redness is extremely attractive.
Hang On A Minute Lads... I've Got A Great Idea, by Richard Wilson
Peninsula Hotel Hong, till April 8th, 2015.
And speaking of extreme equilibrium, this installation by British artist Richard Wilson (1953) which rocks on the rooftop of a hotel, awakes all the senses of the passersby. A replica of an antique bus is placed in the limit of stability. Hong Kong was chosen for this artwork because it's one of the most vertical cities in the world and the rocking of the bus creates a one-of-a-kind illusion.
Pegasus, de Vivianne Duchini
Although not strictly public, we will include it here because it can be seen by everybody. We are talking about Vivianne Duchini's winged horse at the entrance of the Museo Nacional de Arte Decorativo, which will take part of the exhibition the artist will display between April and June. Duchini, an Argentine artist, expresses herself through bronze, modelling large sculptures, specially horses.
