DESCRIPTION

Sunrises and sunsets are among the few moments in the day when we are reminded that the universe is vast and its measure of time infinite. This perspective, when viewed within a landscape, allows viewers a retreat from the comparatively trivial motions of daily life. By creating a new monumental mural comprised of such landscapes—some borrowed from the genre’s historical repertoire, others culled from his imagination—New York–based Swiss artist Nicolas Party encourages viewers to step back from these frenzied times and occupy a far more expansive position. Covering the entire Third Level inner-circle gallery, this site-specific commission takes advantage of the Hirshhorn’s distinctive circular architecture, a form uniquely suited for such immersive and surreal environments.
