Whether you decided that fixing broken tea cups was worth the 2-3 hours or you wandered around a string filled maze, Galerie Lelong hosted one of the most beautiful, simplistic art exhibitions to date.
The Chelsea art gallery in New York filled with pieces of yarn from various points of the room. Small cushions outlined the walls along with randomly placed stones of different sizes.
Visitors are asked to “choose a stone and hold it until all your anger and sadness have been let go.” The exhibition holds a simple, yet thoughtful manner to reflect on in a white canvas space. You chose to meditate or search the rest of the exhibit. Previous attendees created lines of different forms and shapes that made a masterpiece in a simplistic manner.
Yet I performed the exhibit’s requested actions and found piece in the small art gallery. While small dogs slept on the side, I felt that we could all take a moment to accept the peace and quiet that flooded the busiest city in the nation.
Then a friend thought it was appropriate to build a tower of rocks. I thought it was funny until it crashed with a loud, alarming noise.
