Installation > Fracturing Half Moon

Sunroom Project Space at Wave Hill, Bronx, NY

Curated by Eileen Jeng Lynch

In the Sunroom, Amir Hariri creates multiple installations constructed of concrete, wood and other building materials—along with a wall drawing— that connect to his architectural research of the Bronx and Wave Hill. His project Fracturing Half Moon features the visceral and formal qualities of decay as a way to communicate history, memory and experience of particular sites. Using building deterioration as a metaphor, Hariri explores rapid technological and developmental transformations, as well as their social and ethical implications.
