American artist Orly Genger presented her unusual spatial composition called “Red, Yellow and Blue”in the Madison Square Park. It is surprising, but every time Orly Genger finds new use to conventional materials, making something impossible.

This also happened with the “Red, Yellow and Blue” installation, which was created with the use of ten and a half miles of cable ropes connected manually. It took more than thirteen thousand gallons of paint to color the ropes. And the weight of the total composition exceeded forty five tons.
Genger says, that for Madison Square Park she wanted to create an installation that would not frighten the audience, but rather would cause their curiosity. She gathered the materials needed for braiding ropes from around the East Coast of the United States. According to the artist, traditional weaving stores and transmits information, which may be an additional means of communication with the audience.
First, New Yorkers were able to assess the creation of Genger on May 1, 2013. From that day every visitor to Madison Square Park could admire the unusual installation. In September of the same year “Red, Yellow and Blue” moved to a suburb of Boston, where there is a famous deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, freeing up space for a new park installation.
Orly Genger was born in 1979 in New York. In 2002 she graduated from the Art Institute of Chicago, and received her bachelor’s degree at Brown University, one of the most prestigious private U.S. institutions. Currently the artist lives and works in New York.
Genger became famous thanks to the creation of large-scale sculptures and spatial compositions of yarns and ropes. Some of them can be found in private collections, as well as art-level spaces of the The Whitney Museum of American Art, Indianapolis Museum of Art, Hammer Museum of Contemporary Art and many others.
