I visited Storm King Art Center in New Windsor, New York a few years ago. I still think of it often.I sat in this chair, one of two inside Siah Armajani's Gazebo for Two Anarchists: Gabriella Antolini and Alberto Antolini, 1992 The piece is made of wood and teel painted blue-green, white, and black. It measures 10'6" x 32'6" x 8'5" The gazebo sits upon a specially constructed hill. The views of nature and the physical space of the structure feel restrictive and confined.
It makes you wonder about the Antolini's, doesn't it? I can't find out much about them, but I know that the Antolini's were anarchists and followers of Luigi Galleani, an Italian working to overthrow capitalists around the turn of the century. Gabriella was in prison for a time, caught transporting dynamite around Chicago. Perhaps the gazebo, the bars, and the bridge refer to that period of separation.
Storm King curators settle each piece into an appropriate piece of landscape. The scale of the park is incredible. I've never seen anything like it - usually sculpture gardens are tight and crowded. It's a joy to be able to walk for miles and just "find" a giant Calder in the woods. These three are the work of Mark di Suvero.
The gardens are closed until April 1, which gives you plenty of time to plan your visit. And then you'd also get to see the Storm King Wall created by Andy Goldsworthy.
