Press Buzz for Delirious Matter
Located on our Oval Lawn, peripheral lawns, and the northern reflecting pool are six sculptures that seamlessly appear to be deteriorating, growing, and blurring the lines between space and sculpture. Diana Al-Hadid’s Delirious Matter takes past female archetypes as inspiration and translates them into works that pivot against architecture, figuration and abstraction. Two 14-feet high walls nestled by plant materials create a room while three reclining female figures sit on plinths on the outside lawns. Inside the northern reflecting pool sits a sculpture of a female figure perched atop a fragmented mountain.
Delirious Matter is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. Substantial exhibition support for Delirious Matter is provided by Marianne Boesky Gallery, Stacey Goergen, and Showman Fabricators.
