In a display case nearby, a comic made by Zanisnik’s collaborator Eric Winkler adds a bit of context to the disembodied statues, chronicling Walken’s relationship to his native neighborhood. The comic also declares, quite officially, that “No Walken Picking” is permitted.
Zanisinik’s installation is part of Socrates Sculpture Park’s ongoing Emerging Artist Fellowship Exhibition, which features the work of 15 emerging artists at various sites throughout the park. A map with specific details is available here.
For those brave enough to dare take a Walken the park, we salute you.
EAF16: Emerging Artist Fellowship Exhibition will be on display through March 12th, 2017 at Socrates Sculpture Park in Queens, N.Y.
