park avenue project

in new york city, along the park avenue medians, between 53rd and 67th streets, the cuban artist, Alexandre Arrechea, has set up his “No Limits” steel sculptures, which are based on new york architectural landmarks: the Chrysler Building, the former Citigroup Center, the Empire State Building, the Flatiron Building, the Helmsley Building, the MetLife Building, the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company Tower, the Seagram BuildingThe Sherry-Netherland hotel and the Thurgood Marshall United States Courthouse.  “No Limits” is a 10 sculpture site-specific installation, presented by the MagnanMetz gallery in chelsea, together with the city’s parks and recreation department and the Fund for Park Avenue sculpture committee.  Alexandre Arrechea has merged art and architecture in his “No Limits” installation.  the sculptures are an abstraction of these iconic buildings and render a dynamic and fluid interpretation.  merging art and architecture to offer no limits is a perspective just for thebestdressup now!

    Love the angle of your “vase growing building” picture

    • ciao! thanks. that’s the citicorp (citigroup-bank) building and it’s in a ‘spiraling top’ representing the fiscal crisis of our economy. i find this sculpture quite clever.
