Description: Pelham Art Center's Public Art Program, In the Courtyard, continues with a new monumental sculpture by New York City based artist Andrea Stanislav. Wonderwall will be on view in their 2,300 sq. ft open courtyard with an opening reception on July 11, 2014 from 6:30-8pm. This experiential and interactive sonic installation responds to the architecture of the Pelham Art Center’s courtyard, exterior light and visitors to the space. The sculpture is made from cast concrete reinforced with steel rebar, steel tube, and recycled transparent fluorescent vinyl. The participants will experience a minimalist transparent construction that references a labyrinth form and is activated by it’s glowing florescent fuchsia color and light. The cement and florescent vinyl work off each other towards a material duality. Motion sensors are hidden in the trees, and when triggered by visitors, play an original atmospheric remixed audio work from hidden audio speakers, which deconstructs the Oasis song Wonderwall. The installation aims to strike a balance and synergy between a physical form, light, color and sound for the visitor/participant.
