Destroyed by Sandy, artwork is back in Bronx

Destroyed by Sandy, artwork is back in Bronx park to comment on Sandy

It was a victim of its own subject matter.
Just days after last October’s opening reception of Columbia Fiero’s latest installation — a nature-themed work meant as a commentary on climate change — Superstorm Sandy tore it apart.
But that which doesn’t kill you makes your art stronger — Fiero’s piece, “Object of Land, Sea, Clouds: Hover on the Line,” is back in Brook Park, rebranded as “Hover on the Line: Climate Chaos.”
A massive willow fell and shattered the original work. This time, Fiero bought tougher materials to withstand strong winds.
“We want to make it more flexible and durable to the climate changes that are more intense then ever,” she said.
