During the Armory Show Weekend, and in addition to participation with SCOPE art fair, Anonymous Gallery collaborates with the Times Square Alliance to present a public installation from artists David Ellis and Roberto Lange. The kinetic sound sculpture, conceptualized by Ellis and composed by Lange, will be carefully positioned in the Duffy Square area of Times Square near 46th and Broadway. The sculptures are created from scavenged refuse found on the street: buckets, bottles, trash cans, paper shreds, cardboard boxes are then syncopated using programming and player piano actuators to create percussive, rhythmic beats and tones.
The installation, as only a collection of debris, plays on the public’s perception of trash. The placement, and more importantly the activation in the public arena, creates dialog with unassuming crowds that amass.
Similar works by David Ellis and Roberto Lange can be found in permanent collections including The Margulies Collection and most recently, through Anonymous Gallery, The Saatchi Collection.
