Suspended above the ticketing hall, two cardboard sharks hang in perfect symmetry. The sharks anatomical structure are painstakingly constructed from hundreds of precisely cut pieces of cardboard and flat reed that artist William Feeney individually fits and glues together. Feeney’s installation focused on the principles of balance and symbiosis. The installation is not about chasing, fleeing, or attacking. It is about coexisting in harmony with nature. The health and survival of all life on earth depends on humanity’s ability to cohabitate with the rest of the natural world. Feeney uses art to bring disparate things into relation with one another to create larger meaning within the individual object.
