Proposal Spotlight: Natalie Ball

Natalie Ball is an Oregon-based contemporary artist. Her proposal, “KISS THE KOPTU” represents the koptu and c’waam, two sacred suckerfish that have existed for millions of years and are endemic to the Upper Klamath Basin on the Klamath Tribes territory in Oregon. With this piece, Ball is attempting to counter a non-tribal narrative that devalues them as “trash fish” in order to legitimize unsustainable agriculture. The work carries the tribes’ kinship design to celebrate tribal sovereignty and the community who continue to love and protect the fish relatives. “KISS THE KOPTU” encourages viewers to playfully engage and learn as they witness the sacred fish being honored through scale, color, and gesture, as the people of the Klamath Tribes continue to fight for their existence.

You may also recognize Ball from her recent exhibit, “bilwi naats Ga’niipci,” at the Whitney Museum on view from November 2023 – February 2024.

This week is your last chance to view these two colorful works by Derrick Adams on the Connector Billboard! Swing by to see “Sitting Pretty” (2016) and “Sing It Like You Mean It” (2016) at Dyer Avenue between 30th and 31st Streets.

These works explore the ways in which Black personalities have been depicted on TV as overly dramatized, larger-than-life, and exaggerated, particularly between the 1970s and 1990s. These works evoke imagery of the color TVs of the 70s and 80s, from their vintage wood-grain finish frames to the test patterns that would calibrate the screens’ color balance.

Proposal Spotlight: Leilah Babirye

Leilah Babirye is a Ugandan artist living in New York. “Agali Awamu (Togetherness)” is a 16-foot-tall cast bronze sculpture featuring two genderless faces connected through intricate, interwoven rubber braids. The faces point vigilantly in two opposite directions, watching over passersby underneath. Babirye designed the piece specifically to transcend the dynamics of race, gender, and identity, allowing viewers to make their own interpretations. This work is a figurative reflection of Babirye’s lived experience, seeking asylum in the United States after facing discrimination for her sexual orientation.

The Lugandan phrase agali awamu alludes to “togetherness,” but the term also encompasses the communal spirit of uniting in solidarity and looking out for one another. The two figures becoming one, interlocked in a protective embrace, embodies the healing process of gathering with one’s chosen family.

Earlier work by Babirye was on view at Brooklyn Bridge Park as part of “Black Atlantic," an exhibition by Public Art Fund. Babirye’s upcoming work will be featured in the 2024 Venice Biennale.

Proposal Spotlight: Dana Awartani's “An Ode to Our Ancestors"

Dana Awartani is a Palestinian artist living in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Awartani’s proposal, “An Ode to Our Ancestors,” is a 12-pointed stone sculpture inspired by sacred geometry.

“An Ode to Our Ancestors” looks to six-fold symmetry, which is ever-present in nature—from living tissue cells to flowers and snowflakes. Awartani looks at the ecosystem of the High Line—its bees and birds, hives and nests, and trees and blades of grass alike, while also recalling a bygone tradition of stone masonry in New York’s domestic architecture. Through its materiality, “An Ode to Our Ancestors” advocates for craft traditions that value the handmade over the industrialized, emphasize community, and are sustained by generational knowledge, slow production, and durable design. Together, these elements encourage a more harmonious relationship between people, cities, and the natural world.

This proposal is in conversation with Awartani’s previous works, such as “Where the Dwellers Lay” featured at Desert X in 2022. Awartani’s upcoming work will also be featured in the 2024 Venice Biennale.

Now that we've bid farewell to Gabriel Chaile's stunning adobe sculpture on the High Line, let's take a look behind the scenes of the making of "The wind blows where it wishes." 🌬️

Gabriel Chaile's ongoing research is focused on rituals and popular communal gatherings occurring on the periphery of cities. Using archetypal materials, forms, and symbols associated with pre-Columbian cultures, he creates objects and installations that blend Indigenous mythologies and contemporary social themes in a poetic and humorous way.

For this project, Chaile drew upon numerous observations—including da Vinci’s nature drawings, Biblical passages about wind, and representations of natural phenomena in art history—but above all, Chaile took inspiration from pre-Columbian archeological ceramics from northwest Argentina. These ceramics drove Chaile to imagine them as ceremonial objects, wind instruments, kitchen containers, planters, and so much more.

Chaile and his team began producing this commission upstate in Carmel Hamlet, New York. They constructed this work in three separate segments, all structured by a metal base, then coated them with adobe mixture. When the adobe was dry and ready for transport, these three pieces traveled 70 miles south to Manhattan, where they were installed overnight on the High Line at 24th Street. On site, our teams worked together to assemble the pieces, and to apply more adobe mixture at its seams.

We will truly miss this whimsical piece on the High Line! Visit https://bit.ly/45NuKdE to learn more about Chaile and this work.

Amazing from all angles. We're excited to share the latest High Line Art commission to hit the High Line: "On Growth" from Kapwani Kiwanga, a Canadian conceptual artist based in Paris.

Kiwanga's "On Growth" is a sculpture that draws on the histories of institutional and commercial botanic nurseries, which heavily influenced the scientific understanding of plants and horticulture of today. The dichroic glass encases a fern, capturing and transforming the light that passes through it, and changes tone and color as it’s viewed from different vantage points.

🌪️"Windy" made it to Paris! Last week, Meriem Bennani’s first public sculpture swirled through the Jardin des Tuileries as part of 𝐏𝐚𝐫𝐢𝐬+ 𝐩𝐚𝐫 𝐀𝐫𝐭 𝐁𝐚𝐬𝐞𝐥's public program.

Breaking the norms of traditional sculpture, 'Windy' is a 9-foot motorized tornado that rotates at varying speeds and is made from approximately 200 stacked foam disks. Programmed by the artist, each section spins at varying speeds and sequences, creating unique loops that never repeat.

Presented by C L E A R I N G and co-commissioned by High Line Art and Audemars Piguet Contemporary.

Have you seen this humorous new installation on the High Line?

We are thrilled to have Cosima von Bonin bring her ongoing work "WHAT IF THEY BARK?" to the High Line, installing a group of anthropomorphic fish sculptures above the park’s iconic 10th Avenue Square.

Assembled like a military band ensemble, the fish wear theatrical costumes, play musical instruments, and hold checkered missiles. This humorous composition recalls the statue arrangement of ancient Greek temples, but instead of gods and heroes here the artist places sea creatures on land interacting with one another and doing human activities such as playing music.

Now on High Line Channel: "Ancient History," featuring Liv Bugge’s "Goliat, Draugen & Maria" (2022) and Ellie Ga’s "Quarries" (2022). These two films take up different approaches to storytelling, imagining our connections to histories from vastly different time scales, from ancient myths and prehistoric creatures to memories from mere months ago. Both films navigate the materials that histories are made from—the solid proof of stones and bones, alongside more ephemeral tools such as books and films.

New on the High Line: Gabriel Chaile's "The wind blows where it wishes."

"The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit."—John 3:8

Chaile’s large adobe sculpture is the result of numerous observations, including Leonardo da Vinci’s nature drawings, Biblical passages about the wind as a transmitter of forces, and representations of natural phenomena in art history: rain, steam, and speed in Caspar David Friedrich’s paintings, spatial continuity in Umberto Boccioni’s paintings and sculptures, and Hayao Miyazaki’s film "Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind." Above all, the artwork is the result of Chaile’s observations of pre-Columbian archeological ceramics from northwest Argentina, gathered in a small museum in Tucumán. These ceramics, from cultures including Candelaria, Aguada, Cóndor Huasi, Tafí, and Santa María, have inspired the artist to imagine them as ceremonial objects, wind instruments, kitchen containers, planters, and so much more.

New York, meet "Old Tree."

Pamela Rosenkranz's High Line Plinth commission "Old Tree" brings to life mythical archetypes of the tree of life connecting heaven and earth. The tree's color resembles the branching systems of human organs, blood vessels, and tissue, inviting viewers to contemplate the indivisible connection between humans and nature.

The is a landmark destination for major public art that features a rotating program of new monumental commissions. "Old Tree" was one of 80 artworks proposed for the third and fourth commissions, shared with the public online in 2020. This commission follows Simone Leigh's "Brick House" in 2019 and Sam Durant's "Untitled (drone)" in 2021.
