95 Horatio Street by South Korean artist Do Ho Suh is the sixth work in a series of public art installations featured on the façade of TF Cornerstone building, 95 Horatio Street.
Organized by the Whitney in partnership with TF Cornerstone and High Line Art, 95 Horatio Street reconnects the current repurposed use of the High Line to the Meatpacking District's industrial past via a digital rendering of the railway that once ran through the neighborhood. Where before it continued downtown, running through various industrial buildings, today the high line ends at Gansevoort Street – appropriately facing Suh’s work.
95 Horatio Street was formerly the site of Manhattan Refrigerating Company, which had a private siding for the railway, allowing direct access to St. John’s Terminal. And as is the case with many of his other works and site-specific installations, here Suh plays on the significance of the architectural space, examining its relationship to memory and time.
The installation joins 2015's NYC Water Tank project as an example of public art on show at 95 Horatio St, and highlights the ongoing collaboration between TF Cornerstone, the Whitney and High Line Art.
This project is made possible by the Whitney Museum of American Art, TF Cornerstone, and High Line Art, presented by Friends of the High Line. Do Ho Suh: 95 Horatio Street is part of Outside the Box programming, which is privately funded.
The installation was organized by curatorial assistant Christie Mitchell.
95 Horatio Street is on show now.
You can find the work at the corner of Washington St and Gansevoort St, which is only a short walk West from both 14th St Stations on 7th and 8th Ave. Alternatively, you can hop onto the High Line anywhere between Gansevoort St and W 34th Street in Hudson Yards, and head downtown towards it’s end point, which is where you’ll find the most fitting view of the work.
