Off The Wall: Alice Aycock



Sculptor Alice Aycock has a storied history of public installations–her work is permanently on exhibit at public sites such as JFK and Dulles airports, as well as the MoMA and Whitney Museum–and this spring, her latest endeavor, Park Avenue Paper Chase, sits along a five-block stretch of Park Avenue in Midtown, Manhattan. Comprised of painted aluminum and fiberglass, the massive assemblages are reminiscent of the beauty and chaos of waves and wind, a visual metaphor for New York City itself. Here, Life+Times presents an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look of the installation of Park Avenue Paper Chase and sits with Alice as she reveals the immediate and long-held inspirations behind the structures.
