Sara Greenberger Rafferty: After Harry

Exhibition Website

Located at The Fields Sculpture Park

Created for the Public Art Fund in 2008, this work was sited at Metrotech Center in Brooklyn, a public plaza ensconced in the judicial center of Brooklyn. While title After Harry explicitly references Harry Houdini—a figure that figured prominently in Greenberger Rafferty's practice at that time—this work also alludes to the grave impacts of the judicial system. The courts are a place where justice is handed out, and where terms of bondage are determined: will the invisible actor in this piece escape or be held in chains?
