Exquisite Corpse
Presented by DOT Art in partnership with A.I.R Gallery with support from the Fulton Area Business Alliance, “Exquisite Corpse” is installed within Putnam Plaza at Fulton Street and Grand Avenue in Brooklyn. Located within one of the DOT Plaza Program’s interim public plaza locations, the sculpture will serve as an anchor in the plaza. Fanny Allié’s sculpture, fabricated in Brooklyn, focuses on local neighborhood figures who have lived in the area for more than 25 years that she met and then photographed at a weekend event held at the plaza. Larger-than-life-sized, black and white portraits of each subject are displayed on the four blocks of the rotating sculpture. With the participation of the audience, the interactive sculpture will frequently change as each cube shifts and turns to create unique photomontage portraits. In addition, four new resident portraits will be added to the sculpture every three months. Throughout the duration of the installation, Allié will be involved in programming related to her artwork at upcoming events at Putnam Plaza.
