Zorya is happy to be a part of the ZIEMIA project – a multidisciplinary public art project created in collaboration with The Polish Cultural Institute of New York and NYC Parks and Greenpoint residents.
The core object takes the form of a ceramic orb by Greenpoint-based artist Martynka Wawrzyniak in a meadow in McGolrick Park, to be unveiled on June 9, 2018. The sculpture serves as a collective portrait of the diverse Greenpoint community. It is glazed with a mixture of clay excavated in Greenpoint and soils contributed by participating residents from places that are symbolically representative of their identities, including: the United States, Poland, Ukraine, Germany, France, Japan, Serbia, Nepal, the United Kingdom, Ecuador, Mexico, and Namibia. The project includes many Poles who have lived in Greenpoint for generations.
See you on the 9th of June at the McGolrick Park!
