William Kentridge: Stair Procession

This site-specific installation was curated by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev as part of P.S.1’s Vertical Painting series initiated by Alanna Heiss in 1997. Created for P.S.1’s northwest stairwell, Stair Procession is a white-on-black drawing similar to white chalk graffiti. The constricted nature of th... [ + ]e staircase played a role in the artist's decision to use anamorphic distortions. Kentridge evokes the building’s original function as a public school in establishing both the subject matter and method.

William Kentridge's Stair Procession is located in Staircase B.

Keith Sonnier: Tunnel of Tears

A minimalist artist, Keith Sonnier is known for his use of neon lights in architectural contexts. His Tunnel of Tears was installed for the reopening of P.S.1 in 1997. The artist uses two fluorescent light fixtures, one blue and one pink, to form a series of neon loops. The individual fixtures are p... [ + ]ositioned at two different heights along the walls of the chimney. Like much of his work, Sonnier considers the architecture of the exhibition’s location in order to change our perception of the space.

Keith Sonnier's Tunnel of Tears is in the foyer of the lobby.
