About the Event
Fosun Brings International Artist to 28 Liberty Multi-disciplinary artist shares work in twelve-week residency NEW YORK, April 27, 2023 — Fosun will showcase the work of multimedia artist Eva Petrič as part of a twelve-week artist residency at 28 Liberty, the iconic Lower Manhattan office tower. The installation will be projected on a 34-foot by 25-foot LED screen facing the landmarked Fosun Plaza and in the ground-level amphitheatre.
Kindy invited to the opening of the live screening Eva Petrič: Recycling Shadows
at Liberty 28 Plaza and Amphitheater,
May 3rd, from 4 – 6 pm.
Eva Petrič will be presented by Richard Vine, former managing editor of Art in America Magazine, and David Cohen, editor and publisher of artcrticial.com.
Petrič’s video installation, titled “Recycling Shadows,” will be open to the public from May 3 to July 31. Made to highlight the 150th anniversary of the Periodic Table of Elements, analog photography of Petrič’s own shadows visualize emotions, replacing elements from the table.
Petrič’s art has been exhibited globally in over 90 solo and 125 group exhibitions all over the world, receiving numerous recognitions and awards. One image featured in the installation is of “Earthling Tattoo Seal,” which resided at the International Space Station at Low Earth Orbit’s Moon Gallery collection for approximately one year. The piece translates her shadow into the pattern of Idria lace, visualizing connection within and amongst people.
“Eva’s unique perspective makes for an equally compelling installation,” said Tom Costanzo, global partner of Fosun and CEO of Four Trees Asset Management. “We are pleased to bring this exhibit to 28 Liberty and the larger Lower Manhattan community.”
“I am compelled by the intangible nature of shadows and emotions,” said Petrič. “My art employs these figures as a means to build bridges between people, concepts, beliefs, even feelings; an emblem of empathy.”
Other community and cultural events at Fosun Plaza include Sing for Hope Pianos, a yearly initiative that gathers local artists to create pianos for display on the plaza, after which they are placed in each borough and then donated to New York City public schools. The Plaza also accommodates the annual arts festival, River to River, which has become a cornerstone of Lower Manhattan culture.
