NICK CAVE’S ANIMATED DANCING HORSES INVADE GRAND CENTRAL STATION

March 29, 2013  |  art

Chicago-based artist Nick Cave has been invading NYC's Grand Central Terminal with a mesmerizing troupe of 30 animated roving art horses in a project called HEARD•NY in conjunction with Creative Time. Twice a day at 11AM & 2PM through March 31st, the sculptural horses—animated by two dancers from New York's venerable Alvin Ailey dance troupe per suit—wander, graze, and dance through the historical station's halls, accompanied by live music to the amazement of the thousands of hurried commuters that pack the transit hub daily. Cave's motivation? "I’m looking at the station as a platform to get people back to that place where we dream. We’re in a world where we’re trying to do what we can to exist and hold on to our jobs.So I’d like to transmit this dream-state feeling, to get us out of our day-to-day routine for a moment." Don't miss it...
