Recorded Nov. 2020. Sculptor Brandt Junceau contemplates Gaston Lachaise’s Floating Woman at Hunter’s Point South Park in Long Island City, NY, in the context of her environs and the legacy of her creator. (Edits and sound by Rachael Bohlander; some images provided with permission by the Lachaise Foundation and other organizations.)
Here are some excerpts below:
“She touches ground like no other sculpture on earth.”
“The installation is inspired. The single piece possesses the whole landscape.”
“She is an expression of nature so basic that it defies words. Maybe saying so much can only be said quietly.”
