Joyspotting: Jessica Stockholder and Mad. Sq. Art

By Ingrid Fetell Lee

3557038819_d5684c3807_bColorful installation by Jessica Stockholder called Flooded Chambers Maid in Madison Square Park playing with the innate geometries of nature and the tension between man-made and natural in an urban park. Stockholder narrated a nice audio slide show offering her inspirations and interpretations. Not sure I’m feeling a cohesive logic here (the half-buried plastic drums?) but Madison Square Park is one of my favorite parks in the city (not just for Shake Shack) and I like the way this installation alters the energy of the space.

It departs this week so get there by Saturday if you want to check it out!

Thanks to Maggie for the tip.
