DESCRIPTION

California artist, Sabine Reckewell, uses simple materials of strings, ribbons, nails and push pins to create minimalist sculptures that wholly transform space. For her installation at 155 Grove Street, Reckewell will construct two distinct views from each window that are nevertheless completely connected with each other. Two sets of lines in different colors will stretch from one sidewall to the other. The lines will not physically touch each other, but they will overlap visually.

A set of green lines made from ribbons will form a lower level in the background and the blue ribbons will be placed higher and will fill the foreground.

Through the left side of the windows, a viewer will look straight at the blue lines but green lines will still be visible. Through the right side of the windows, the view is more open and allows the viewer to look into and between the layers.

As viewers move in front of the windows they will be able to see how the two sides connect. The patterns will shift and create different overlaps and densities.

Hours: Viewable from the sidewalk 24/7
