Lena Henke’s two new building-cum-horse hoof sculptures capture her interest in the relationships between New York City’s history of urban planning, the natural world, and her own personal history. The forms are composed of cast fiberglass and soft rubber granulate, and situated in Rockefeller Center’s formal, Art Deco-influenced complex. In this urban context, the sculptures function as an ode to the buildings’ many equestrian symbols and become objects of irrational, organic flux.
