From competition to concepts of corporate success, this New York-based sculptor has created a series of thought-provoking outdoor installations. Where?
New York City’s Theatre District and Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza are home to five monumental new sculptures.
The installations, created by internationally acclaimed New York-based sculptor Jim Rennert, stand at over 12.5-feet tall and illustrate concepts of corporate success and the obstacles faced by the modern working man.
The outdoor installations will be on view through 2021 and 2022 in addition to smaller-scale editions that are featured in Cavalier Gallery LLC (3 West 57th Street).
Drawing on both his past professional experiences, and those of his contemporaries, Rennert composes thought-provoking works through simplified figures and forms.
“Walking the Tightrope,” which will be located at the entrance of 1700 Broadway, was created using athletic themes to express concepts we all deal with when making a living.
“WTF,” which will also be located at 1700 Broadway, was the third monumental work Rennert composed after “THINK BIG” – located at The Anthem (222 East 34th Street) – and “Perspective.”
The other three works, “Timing,” “Inner Dialogue,” and “Commute” will be located on Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza at East 47th Street and are inspired by Rennert’s past experiences in the competitive world of business.
Each title works together with the visual image to illustrate the experience, sometimes physical, sometimes psychological and showcase the thoughts and ideas we all deal with in our contemporary society.
