NEW YORK, NY.- As part of the international art project, CONNECT, BTS, introduced by BTS, pioneering global superstars from Korea, New York’s Brooklyn Bridge Park Pier 3 is the site of the creation of a vast ‘drawing in space’ by internationally acclaimed British artist Antony Gormley, which will be on show free to the public from 5 February – 27 March 2020.

New York Clearing (2020) is conceived as a single line made up of more than 11 miles of square aluminium tubing that loops and coils without beginning or end, rising to a height of nearly 50 feet, turning itself into an environment for the viewer that counters the grid of modernism and the city with swooping lines of energy. The work is situated on a landmark site at Pier 3, in Brooklyn Bridge Park, overlooking the East River.

Speaking about New York Clearing, Antony Gormley said: “This is the first time that I have attempted to make Clearing without architectural support. I am enormously excited about the opportunity of making this energy field in conversation with Manhattan across the waters of the East River. It can be seen as an evocation of human connectivity, a materialisation of the energy of the people that view it and the people that made it.”

“We’re honoured to host Antony Gormley’s New York Clearing here at Brooklyn Bridge Park,” said Eric Landau, Brooklyn Bridge Park President. “We have a long history of incredible art installations in the Park, and can’t think of a better place than Pier 3 for this amazing piece.”

CONNECT, BTS is an international art project taking place in five cities on four continents, introduced by BTS, open free to the public in Berlin, Buenos Aires, London, New York and Seoul, and developed by a group of curators under the artistic direction of independent Korean curator, Daehyung Lee. CONNECT, BTS draws motifs from parts of BTS' philosophy that centers around diversity, love and care for the periphery as well as communicating and fostering connections that transcend barriers. Other artists featured in the project include: Jakob Kudsk Steensen (Serpentine Galleries, London), performances by 17 international artists including Jelili Atiku, boychild with Josh Johnson and Total Freedom, Cevdet Erek, Marcelo Evelin, Bill Fontana, Maria Hassabi, Mette Ingvartsen with Will Guthrie, Baba Murah and Candomblé Berlin, Antonija Livingstone and Nadia Lauro with Mich Cota, Kennis Hawkins and Stephen Thompson (Gropius Bau, Berlin); Tomás Saraceno (CCK, Buenos Aires); Ann Veronica Janssens and Yiyun Kang (Dongdaemun Design Plaza, Seoul).

CONNECT, BTS, Art Director and independent curator Daehyung Lee commented: "BTS has created a movement involving an audience of millions worldwide. Their ability to speak meaningfully to people of different cultural backgrounds, social classes, ethnicities, genders and identities speaks in turn to modern art’s long-standing goal to transcend imagined boundaries." Through the project, BTS expands its own artistic reach into the world, collaborating with renowned curators and artists to connect the world through the common universal language of art.

Audiences visiting the exhibitions will be able to access special artwork introduction videos recorded by BTS. These clips can be accessed via the CONNECT, BTS official website (www.connect-bts.com) by clicking on “Secret Docent”.
