press release

Sarah Sze’s Public Art Fund commission Corner Plot unites the artist’s signature delicate assemblages with her ongoing interest in architecture and the urban environment. A corner of a building – made to resemble the white-brick, post-war apartment co-op that stands on the opposite corner across Fifth Avenue – protrudes from the pavement. Inside the spare and sturdy modernist exterior is a fragile, chaotic underground world, lit from within and filled with an apartment’s worth of belongings including a stack of white bath towels, an end table, a fire extinguisher, water bottles, desk lamps, cartons of salt, notebook paper, a bathroom scale, rolls of toilet paper and much more. Doris C. Freedman Plaza is located at the southeast corner of Central Park, 60th Street and Fifth Avenue.

Sarah Sze’s Corner Plot is sponsored by Bloomberg. Additional support is provided by Con Edison.
