You may have noticed something big going up in Domino Park in Williamsburg recently. Atop a set of stacked shipping containers, in an installation designed by the firm LOT-EK, the artist JR is putting up his latest large-scale wheat paste work, Chronicles of New York. The installation, is produced in conjunction with the Brooklyn Museum’s current exhibition JR: Chronicles, and is a compilation of over 1,000 New Yorkers the artist has photographed, including Untapped New York’s photography instructor, Stephanie de Rouge, who ran our One Place, One Face workshops.
The work, which opens officially Monday February 3 is presented by the Brooklyn Museum with additional support from Two Trees Management and Domino Park. LOT-EK is known for its sustainable, adaptive reuse of materials like shipping containers.
