Daniele Frazier, Big Bird

December 28, 2020 to December 27, 2021
Highland Park, Brooklyn

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

Big Bird features a six-foot-tall aluminum cutout of a white-bellied caique parrot, hand-painted in sign enamel. The bird is perched twenty feet above the ground, as if it were surveying the activities of park-goers below. Hanging from the perch is a bronze bell, recalling the types of "enrichment" toys that are provided for caged birds. In keeping with themes of Frazier's past works that depend on interaction with the weather, the bell rings in high winds and can be heard even where the piece cannot be seen.
