Current Long Term Installations

Darren Almond - A Bigger Clock & Six Months Later, 2012

laundrette
Darren Almond works in a variety of media including photography and film, which he uses to explore the effects of time on the individual.  He uses ‘sculpture, film and photography to produce work that harnesses the symbolic and emotional potential of objects, places and situations, producing works which have universal as well as personal resonances.’

Serge Onnen - Planetariummonetarium, 2009

installations
In Planetariummonetarium, the work on show by Serge Onnen, a variant is staged: what we are is heavily influenced by the ways in which we are able to gather information from the things we see. His Peekskill Planetariummonetarium is a small sphere filled with 13 kaleidoscopes and hundreds of small coins from around the world. ‘An intimate inner-space on the wide shores of the Hudson river,’ he writes.

Job Koelewijn - Water Works, 2009

installations
Water Works is located at the Annsville Creek Preserve in Peekskill, NY (MAP). The park is open from dawn to dusk. Job Koelewijn’s installation has been made possible through the generous support by the Mondriaan Foundation, the Consulate General of the Netherlands in New York and FONDS BKVB.

Daan Padmos - Time Sharing, 2009

installations
In the real estate business, 'time sharing' means sharing ownership of a house, allowing purchasers to occupy it during a specified period of time each year. Padmos is fabricating a series of maquettes of the sculpture in three sizes. The money from the sale of the maquettes is being used to finance the fabrication of the large-scale sculpture, but at the same time the buyers become closely involved in the project.

Folkert de Jong - Mount Maslow, 2007

jong
Dutch artist Folkert de Jong is one of the most innovative young sculptors today. Inspired by Abraham Maslow’s “Theory of Human Motivation,” De Jong stages an 18-foot styrofoam snow mountain being scaled by two bearded figures. Hamburger Hill references an American assault on a Vietnam position in which most of the troops died and the hill had no strategic value.

Thomas Hirschhorn - Laundrette, 2001

laundrette
Using commonplace materials such as cardboard, linoleum, postage tape and aluminum foil, Swiss artist Thomas Hirschhorn has recreated a full-scale replica of a laundrette, in which cardboard models of washing-machines are inset with television sets showing global atrocities downloaded from the internet juxtaposed to videos of the artist performing everyday, commonplace tasks. Hirschhorn, who has become the most celebrated international installation artist, challenges us to consider how poverty and neglect has led to human incivility.
