David Byrne Giant Globe Squashed Under High Line in NYCJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 14 Sep 2011
Yes, the Talking Heads David Byrne. Underneath the High Line at West 25th Street in NYC, Byrne has a gigantic globe that appears to be squashed tightly under the tracks. The piece, Tight Spot, will occupy this space until October 1, 2011. The work is up in conjunction with Pace Gallery, which will build a gallery in this location after Byrne's piece comes out, or down, or exploded.
“The worst is to be told, Oh, just do anything you want to do,” Byrne tells NYMag. “Things tend to create themselves when you lay out all the rules.”
Starting on September 15, you can see the world underneath the train tracks.
