Last night we went to an art installation at the architecturally resplendent Lever House, the Gordon Bunshaft International Style masterpiece on the east side of Midtown. The installation, by Peter Wegner, is called the Lever Labyrinth. Unfortunately, the labryinth, which uses two and a half million sheets of paper, is neither challenging nor particularly transcendent.
Billed as a sprawling garden maze, the most you can say about it is that it offers the hard, Modernist interior of the Lever House Lobby an air of chaos and instability. However, most people experience that in their office supply room every day. Here, it’s just a lot greener and runs through September 4th.
