Rush Arts Gallery Chelsea NYC
”Piertopolis Mappings: Goa - Panama City - NYC - Amsterdam - Dakar. Rush Arts Gallery and Sasha Dees present the artist talk “Piertopolis” by Antonio Jose Guzman. Antonio talked about what he has been doing his past visit in New York and showed visual results of the project so far in Panama and India.
Piertopolis interventions in public spaces features photos and wooden piers on which one can walk and connect to other piers in different parts of the world. A pier accommodates the act of leaving, of traveling and embarking - it is a place where the gone and lost are contemplated. At the same time, a pier is a place easily associated with arrival and return, with reconnection, and with the fulfillment of hopes and wishes. Besides, a pier is also a continuously changing structure.
