As part of this year’s DUMBO Arts Festival, sculptor Tom Fruin installed his famous plexiglass house, “Kolonihavehus,” in Brooklyn Bridge Park. The multi-colored house was lit from inside and temporarily inhabited by performance duo CoreAct who engaged in a collaborative physical performance that is described here by DUMBO:
The colorful glass house is inhabited by two performers, who portray everyday dilemmas and lifestyle paradoxes in a subtle manner. They have lost the ability to meaningfully discriminate, and are trapped in a long chain of procrastination, mirroring our current social patterns.
You might also recognize Fruin’s other renowned sculpture in DUMBO, “Watertower.”
