Mark di Suvero’s Sculpture “Yoga” Transported Out Of Brooklyn Bridge Park

It seems like only yesterday that we welcomed Mark di Suvero‘s Sculpture “Yoga” sculpture to Brooklyn Bridge Park Pier 1 for a limited run of “about a year”. Sure, for the first few weeks many of us thought the thing was totally WHACK (as we believe is the vernacular). But over time, we grew to love it. Kids loved it too.

And now… it’s gone. What a bummer.

Karl Junkersfeld reports:

While taking my daily walk through beautiful Brooklyn Bridge Park, to my dismay, Mark di Suvero’s innovative sculpture called “Yoga” was being disassembled and placed on a flatbed truck to be transported to destination unknown. After repeated observations, I am going to miss this wonderful piece of art. Thank you both Mr. di Suvero and Brooklyn Bridge Park for what little time Yoga and I had together. The pleasure was all mine.

    You can fool some of the people some of the time….that’s the rake away from the existence of Suvero’s successful (meaning uping the value of his so-called work) and its removal. What was wrong with it? It was ugly. It was meaningless. It had zero relevance to the glorious site it was planted on.

    Sculptor, go peddle your crap to some other sucker.

    Park Management; Give us anything relevant to the site and beautiful to look at.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Apparently, you weren’t beholden.

    Mark di Suvero has a high enough profile that he doesn’t need to place a sculpture in BBP to ‘up the value of his work.’ If you don’t like the piece, fine. You don’t gain in credibility by affecting the pose of a philistine.

    We loved the piece and hope they continue to put large art in the same place.

    Farewell, skiing pawn! Don’t get accidentally melted for scrap!

    I finally figured it out. Put a telephone pole in the big ring, have a big rubber band on the lower band, wait for a really big pigeon (or low-flying helicopter) to fly in front, and ZAP!!!

    It really wasn’t appealing. Also, the correct spelling is Wack. :)

    It grew on me. I’ll miss it.
