Grimanesa Amorós. Hedera, 2018. Light installation. Prospect Park Bandshell, Brooklyn Festival

Hedera by Grimanesa Amorós has been commissioned for BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn Festival


Brooklyn, NY

As part of its 40th year anniversary season, BRIC the leading presenter of free cultural programming in Brooklyn, and one of the largest in New York City, has commissioned HEDERA, a monumental light structure by Grimanesa Amorós, the interdisciplinary New York-based Peruvian artist who has “built a reputation for dazzling light installations that suggest the topographies of distant planets” (The New York Times T Magazine). HEDERA, to be installed at the Prospect Park Bandshell as a special element of the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, seeks to intensify the relationship between public space and community through the conversation it generates. From June 5 to August 11, many thousands of visitors from Brooklyn and beyond will be able to interact with the sculpture. 

Viewers who venture into the center of HEDERA will see their own reflection in the cupola above. At the nucleus of HEDERA, visitors will see smaller protruding domes—forms that suggest a plant’s central bud. Their reflective shadows will offer images of a flower blooming, of growth and creation. Amorós has stated that it is her wish that this sculpture co-exists with its viewers, bringing them closer to an ideal world where individuals can unite in celebration of creativity, nature, diversity and a shared humanity.

The organization presents and incubates work by artists and media-makers that reflects the diversity of New York. BRIC programs reach hundreds of thousands of people each year.
