NYC-based sculptor, Tom Fruin, just installed his colorful plexiglass and steel house at the Brooklyn Bridge Park. The artwork is called Kolonihavehus, taking its name and inspiration from Copenhagen’s ubiquitous kolonihavehus: a modest garden shed originally intended to give state workers a refuge from cramped living conditions in the city. This small home was made from over 1,000 pieces of salvaged plexiglass.
From the artist:
“Kolonihavehus was conceived in collaboration with CoreAct, a Copenhagen-based performance company headed by Anika Barkan and Helene Kvint. During its exhibition the sculpture is brought to life by performances exploring the concrete poetry of Danish poet Vagn Steen, with computer controlled light sequences by Nuno Neto, Mikkel Jensen and Frantisek Fabian, a sound installation by Astrid Lomholt, and costumes by Camilla Lind.”
