On view now in Bella Abzug Park, City Ecology by NY-based artist Sui Park is an installation of 32 site-specific sculptures commissioned by the Hudson Yards Hell’s Kitchen Alliance (HYHK). For this exhibition, Park gives texture and shape to the colorful stories, dynamic relationships, and complex patterns of connection that she observes within New York City and amongst its residents, and she places those forms within the landscape of a public green space. The sculptures are carefully constructed using cable ties, an inexpensive and mass-produced industrial material. When woven together, Park creates seemingly organic, biomorphic shapes that both complement and contrast with the natural environment. She arranges them in clusters within Bella Abzug Park.
