I discovered an El Anatsui at the high line. For those who don’t know New York, the high line is an old freight railway track dating from the time when this part of the city was a manufacturing centre. It runs above the meat packing district and Chelsea and it has been repurposed as green space. There is a boardwalk, seating and plantings, the occasional sculpture, and a few food stalls. It is a great addition to the Manhattan west side.
This work, Broken Bridge, is made from recycled tin and mirror. The tin has been perforated and beaten, and is mostly heavily rusted.
And here is a view of the high line.
There is also a video installation on the high line. A great idea!
