Harumi Ori, I am Here@Thomas Jefferson Park, 113 Street and 1st Ave, Manhattan, NY

July 10, 2018 to July 9, 2019
Thomas Jefferson Park, Manhattan

Please note: This is a past exhibit that is no longer installed in the park.


Harumi Ori folds and sews orange industrial mesh, a sacred color in Japan, to create three dimensional snapshots. Using photographs she took of parkgoers as inspiration, she has created a vibrant 30 foot portrait of the park out of mesh. Her layered folds convincingly render the shape and volume of people and their surroundings. The installation both documents and celebrates the surrounding community’s diversity.

This exhibition was made possible by the Art in the Parks: UNIQLO Park Expressions Grant.
