At the Armory on Park Avenue there is an extraordinary installation that was a touch of heaven to be part of. ‘Installation’ doesn’t seem a big enough word to convey the magnificent experience of Ann Hamilton’s artistry. Hanging in the middle of the huge expanse of the Armory, a sail is connected to massive pulleys through interconnecting ropes and swings on either side. So that as people swing, the momentum they create moves the sail up and down. It is mesmerizing. I made straight for the swings, but many people just laid under the swooshing sail in the middle of the space in a peaceful meditation. Children ran around with delight, laughing with the playground atmosphere – the enormity of the sail and the magic of being part of it’s movement was pure fun. Just what we need at this time of the year!
