Big Bambú: You Can't, You Don't, and You Won't Stop



Big Bambú: You Can't, You Don't, and You Won't Stop
UNITED STATES
NEW YORK  •  Metropolitan Museum of Art  •  Ongoing
 
American artists Mike and Doug Starn (born 1961) have been invited by The Metropolitan Museum of Art to create a site-specific installation for The Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden. The identical twin brothers present their new work, Big Bambú: You Can't, You Don't, and You Won't Stop, a monumental bamboo structure ultimately measuring 100 feet long by 50 feet wide by 50 feet high in the form of a cresting wave that bridges realms of sculpture, architecture, and performance. Visitors are meant to witness the creation and evolving incarnations of Big Bambú as it is constructed throughout the spring, summer, and fall by the artists and a team of rock climbers. Set against Central Park and its urban backdrop, the installation Doug + Mike Starn on the Roof: Big Bambú will suggest the complexity and energy of an ever-changing living organism. It comprises the 13th consecutive single-artist installation for the Cantor Roof Garden.
