0 Comments on this event

As part of its 40th anniversary, Public Art Fund will present EARTH POTENTIAL, a new exhibition by emerging Estonian artist Katja Novitskova. Her first major institutional show and outdoor commission in the United States, the exhibition will transform Lower Manhattan’s City Hall Park into a surreal landscape with a new series of seven large, flat cut aluminum sculptures. Featuring online-sourced, digitally-printed imagery, the works layer alien-like, yet terrestrial animals and organisms over celestial bodies and planets. By creating images at once scientific and poetic, these dramatic, visual objects expose worlds unseen by the naked eye yet indispensable to human advancement. The flatness of the sculptures replicates the experience of viewing images online, while the imagery and its connotations – from science fiction to achievements in image making – will encourage visitors to consider how developments in technology have changed our perceptions of the natural world.
