New York's Brooklyn Bridge Park Pier 3 will be the site of the creation of a vast 'drawing in space' - NEW YORK CLEARING. A single line made of 18 kilometres of square aluminium tubing that loops and coils without beginning or end, turning itself into an environment for the viewer that counters the grid of modernism and the city with swooping lines of energy.
This is one of a series of major art projects entitled CONNECT, BTS which will go on show over the coming months in five cities on four continents with 22 contemporary artists.
CONNECT, BTS is presented by pioneering global superstars from Korea, BTS and has been developed by a group of international curators under the artistic direction of independent Korean curator, Daehyung Lee.
