Grimanesa Amorós: Pink Lotus at The Peninsula Hotel New York, October 1- November 15, 2015

Photographs by Corrado Serra.

Pink Lotus, a large-scale, site-specific light sculpture by artist Grimanesa Amorós, was installed on the façade of The Peninsula New York in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Amorós used LED lights to create a pink lotus flower. The installation activates the entrance to the hotel with a focus on the Palladian window above the door and the carvings of Ceres, Roman Goddess of agriculture and abundance, and Diana, the Roman Goddess of the hunt, the moon and childbirth. As in all of her work, Pink Lotus light sculpture creates a dialogue with the existing architecture and the history of the site.
