Survival of Serena by Carole Feuerman
Sculptor Carole A. Feuerman’s Larger-than-Life Sculpture Comes to Life in SoHo
Survival of Serena on display for the summer in Petrosino Square with NYC Parks and Recreation
Mana Contemporary’s resident artist Carole Feuerman will be exhibiting this summer with NYC Parks and Recreation. Her monumental work, Survival of Serena, will be showcased for the first time in hyper-realistically painted bronze, courtesy of Jim Kempner Fine Art.
The sculpture will be on view to the public May 21st through September 23rd in Petrosino Square, SoHo in the triangular median near Spring Street and along Lafayette. We invite you to join us on Sunday, May 20th at 12:30pm for a special unveiling event at the park with a reception and artist talk to follow at Jim Kempner Fine Art where refreshments will be served.
Keep an eye out for Mana Contemporary’s trucks adorned with photos of this magnificent sculpture circulating the city. Starting this May, Feuerman will also have a brand new print series celebrating this iconic sculpture.
Survival of Serena first debuted in painted resin at the 2007 Venice Biennale and was named in honor of the traditional name of Venice, La Serenissima, which literally means 'the most/very serene’, a theme which transverses much of the artist’s body of work. The sculpture went on to win first prize in the Beijing Biennale the following year. In her art, Feuerman strives to find the common thread that unites us as people, one and the same. With the culturally dynamic location of the park, Feuerman sees Petrosino Square as the perfect location to unveil her new bronze sculpture for the first time.
