About This Project

Built with steel pipes salvaged from another sculpture project at Socrates Sculpture Park, Finnibar is the first work incorporating a large chunk of stone as a counterweight. With a name and concept loosely pulled from a Celtic myth involving the “largest bull of the land” and all kinds of bloodshed, it is the kinetic abstraction of a bull straining against the line. The stone was pulled from the East River by a construction company working on the storm drain system in Queens. They offered it along with the machines to move it around for a year.
