Andy Battaglia: Activating Public Space: A High Line Art Walk with Curator Cecilia Alemani


“Mariechen Danz, an Irish-born, Berlin-based artist, was part of the Venice Biennale last year, and she often looks at the human body as a repository of knowledge. In this case she’s alluding to anatomical models that you use to learn about anatomy that have trays with different organs, but she’s also using very creative materials—gold, aluminum, wood, semi-precious stone, sand, garbage, shells. She calls it The Dig of No Body (soil sample)—it’s almost like a geological dig but also kind of an assemblage of different materials used in sculpture.”
