The interactive, three-part installation, Exquisite Plants, by artists Adam Frezza & Terri Chiao, will open at 99 Plymouth Street, Brooklyn Bridge Park on September 9th. The whimsical flower images, inspired by the surrounding park, explore shape-building and abstraction through play. Each part in this installation is meant to bring viewers together in a collaborative and creative effort – as in the Community Room’s interactive magnetic wall, where large magnetic decals can be rearranged to create new compositions.

The hallway is lined with a series of Exquisite Plants, several large, colorful, reliefs created by the artists out of fiberboard. The third part takes viewers to a Workshop Gallery, showcasing original collages made during public workshops.

A variation of this is work is currently on view in the installation, Exquisite Corpse at the Putnam Triangle Plaza in Clinton Hill, with the parts being long-time residents of that community.

Exquisite Plants will be on view to November 2, 2017 at 99 Plymouth Street, Brooklyn Bridge Park. Frezza and Chiao’s work was most recently seen inside and outside The Arsenal in Central Park.
