The Storm King Art Center, Brooklyn Bridge Park, and The Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy announced the installation of a 30-foot steel sculpture called “Yoga” by American artist Mark di Suvero at Pier 1. It went in yesterday afternoon. This is the first piece in an an anticipated ongoing arts program at BBP. According to the press release, “[The sculpture] comprises an I-beam—bent into a U-shape—that rocks and pivots on a stainless-steel pole, itself topped by an O-shaped element. The sculpture creates changing shadows and perspectives as the I-beam variously ‘points’ to the harbor, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Governors Island, and beyond, while the ‘O’ may remind viewers of a ship’s portal or a magnifying glass.” It will remain on Pier 1’s Bridge View Lawn for one year.
