High Line-inspired Art: Sur la ligne/On the line

Jan Gilbert's "Sur la ligne/On the line" at 571 Projects.
 

571 Projects in Chelsea is now showing a High Line-inspired work by artist Jan Gilbert. The New Orleans native makes her debut in New York with a piece entitled Sur la ligne/On the line. In the gallery's press release, Gilbert states that the High Line "serves as a superb viewing pedestal of this vibrant, quirky, industrial layer of the city." Her photographic works combine multiple perspectives on views from the High Line, and the images are embalmed in a transparent membrane.

Sur la ligne/On the ligne is mixed-media featuring photographs taken from Gilbert's journey that began in France and ended on the High Line. Gilbert's work will be up at 571 Projects through March 20. More info on the gallery's web site.
