In love with this “The Resilience of the Dreamer” by Patti Smith for MoMA PS1 at Fort Tilden Rockaway Beach, New York.
She offered up several stunning works, including a large-scale installation, photography exhibition, and this site-specific outdoor installation ‘The Resilience of the Dreamer’. Having witnessed personal belongings of Rockaway residents being destroyed and washed away during Sandy, Smith installed a gilded four-post bed with pure white linens in a long-abandoned building that lacks windows and parts of its roof. The bed will wear down physically, yet remain in place, a symbol of courage and resilience.
I wish I was in NY now to go and see it in person…
