About ‘Proposal for a Monument (Two)’
Two iconic New York City brownstone stoops face each other as if in conversation – holding space for dialog around the built environment, gentrification and displacement, and monumentality. Simultaneously, the work provides a physical space to rest, distantly gather, perform, and exchange. An audio component plays a series of “stoop stories” shared by NYC residents, elevating the average person and commonplace experience to the monumental.
Thank You: Excellent Contracting for consultation and materials donation, and deep gratitude to the staff and install team at Socrates for their expertise and efforts.
