Beka Goedde: Fictitious Force
Opening Reception: May 13, 2015 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Old Stone House & Washington Park, Brooklyn
Enter at 5th Avenue between 3rd and 4th Streets
Constructed from nearly 1,000 colorfully dyed concrete tiles, Fictitious Force is a temporary public art installation by artist Beka Goedde embedded in the lawn of the Old Stone House & Washington Park. The piece is arranged in concentric circles to resemble an early American hooked or braided rug, and intended to be trod upon like paving stones. This historic site of the American Revolution is particularly suited to host a work that references traditional American craft. While meditative and still, the pattern of the piece conveys a sense of movement that echoes the energy of the nearly 3,000 people attracted to the park daily.
This exhibit is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC).
Fictitious Force will remain on view from April 20, 2015 - April 19, 2016, at the Old Stone House & Washington Park, Brooklyn.
