ORLY GENGER – Red, Yellow and Blue


Madison Square Park Conservatory Square Art is installing Orly Genger’s trademark hand knotted nautical rope in Madison Square Park in waves of Red, Yellow and Blue – ”1.4 million feet of rope—the total length equating to nearly 20 times the length of Manhattan—covered in over 3,000 gallons of paint, and weighing over an astounding 100,000 pounds”!

Genger is using installation to create an interaction between the public and her art. The rope sections off and creates a new landscape in hopes that you will find and explore/navigate these spaces.

It’ll be there in all it’s glory until September 8th, 2013 until it gets shipped off to Boston, marking the first of Mad. Sq. Art’s commissions to travel.

  1. […] Orly Genger’s large-scale installation of hand
    knotted rope is currently being installed in New York’s Madison
    Square Park. Red, Yellow, and Blue is made up of “1.4 million feet
    of hand-crocheted lobster-fishing rope, which she has used to
    create three towering enclosures, each painted a different primary
    color.” The work will be there until September 8th and then will
    travel to Boston. [NY Times | Art Nerd New York] […]
