Broken Glass Art Installation by HU BING at the Flatiron Prow Art Space

Hu Bing’s new art installation called "Shattered Debris, Sheer Transformation" is currently on display in the Flatiron Prow Artspace, the triangular tip of the  the Flatiron Building towards 23rd Street between Broadway and Fifth Avenue. The installation is comprised of broken sake bottles hung from the ceiling, shards of automotive glass, iron, resin, cheesecloth draped chaise lounges and smashed windshields. Hu Bing's piece represents some of the anger and alienation that she experienced during the Cultural Revolution in Shanghai. She magically transforms something dangerous into something positive and beautiful. The broken glass also evokes the shock Hu felt on seeing car crashes outside her window in Williamsburg, where she first lived in New York. The display continues through June 2, 2012. The artist is on site on Tuesdays from 11 AM - 3 PM, according to the exhibit caption.
