Exhibition “Sarah E. Brook: The Need You Know It Is A Letting Light”
Experience Sarah E. Brook’s monumental multimedia installation, The Need You Know It Is A Letting Light, from October 15, 2022 — May 5, 2023, at the Lena Horne Bandshell, Presented by BRIC and Prospect Park Alliance, in partnership with NYC Parks’ Art in the Parks program.
The Need You Know It Is A Letting Light is a set of three abstract wooden sculptures and an accompanying mural that together expand the artist’s exploration of communication between external and internal psychic space. The mural’s colors of red, yellow, and green are sourced from the natural beauty of Prospect Park, and both draw viewers in from the park and radiate out from the Bandshell and stage into the park, reflecting the function of a bandshell to expand voices. The repurposed wood sculptures respond to the colors of the mural, expressing warm-hued shadows that appear to be held within. The sculptures’ material communicates their singularity through wear — a crooked nail, an empty hole, a worn edge — and in its gentle leaning formation, allows for the sculptures to be read as bodies supporting one another.
Time: 11 AM-1 PM
