Art: Tape Philadelphia: Enter The Cocoon
INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS BUILD LIVING SCULPTURE MADE FROM TAPE AT THE PHILADELPHIA NAVY YARD
Group X and the Philadelphia Navy Yard announce its latest public art installation, Tape Philadelphia: Enter the Cocoon (#NavyYardCocoon), an interactive tape sculpture created by experimental European arts collective Numen/For Use. This temporary experience was installed inside 1701 Langley Avenue (Building 694) at the Navy Yard, latching onto the building’s existing structural beams using 21.5 miles of translucent tape – the distance of the Broad Street Run course from start to the finish line at the Navy Yard and back! This is Numen/For Use’s first installation on the East Coast, and their second in the United States. It is their only installation created to date that integrates the needs of visitors with disabilities or limited mobility.
Tape Philadelphia: Enter the Cocoon was open November 2019, through December 2019.
