Ten of New York City’s most recognizable buildings are whimsically distorted in Cuban artist Alexandre Arrechea’s sculpture series, “No Limits.” The Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, and other landmarks are shown coiled up like hoses and spinning like tops in metal sculptures that reach 20 feet in height (the sculptures seen here are scale models). Arrechea talks about the series in this short video by Juan Carlos Alom and Armando Suárez Cobián. “No Limits” will be on display on Park Avenue in Manhattan, March 1 to June 9, 2013 in an outdoor installation presented by Magnan Metz Gallery.
