Met's Roof Garden "Hedge Two-Way Mirror Walkabout"

May 01, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Artist Dan Graham and landscape architect Günther Vogt have collaborated on a roof garden installation at the Met Museum. Between ivy hedgerows are curved steel and two-way mirrored glass reflecting the iconic NYC skyline. "Part garden maze" and "part modernist skyscraper facade," the installation, termed a pavilion,  figuratively breathes urban air as it reflects upon the ivy hedgerows of suburban living. States Graham, "My pavilions are always a kind of two-way mirror, which is both transparent and reflective simultaneously, and it changes as the sunlight changes. This relates to the changing landscape, but it also means that people on the inside and on the outside have views of each other superimposed, as each gaze at the other and at the material. It's intersubjective."
