Gravity & Grace

This past weekend a friend and I made a slow trek into the halls of the Brooklyn Museum to view the latest installation by Ghanian born artist, El Anatsui, Gravity & Grace. The show was spectacularly breathtaking & I’m pretty certain the pics below won’t do it justice. But on the off chance you find yourself lingering in BK starting now until the exhibits closing on August 4 of this year – pop in, but don’t touch. Believe me, so much easier said than done. The installation houses over 30 works made of wood & metal (mainly recycled bottle tops and caps) that have been transformed into the most tangible connectors. The brilliant part? Each hanging metal sheet takes on a radically different shape each time it’s hung.
