‘Breaking the Bottle’ by Mark Reigelman at Heller Gallery

Mark Reigelman: Breaking the Bottle at Heller Gallery

Brooklyn-based artist mark reigelman has created ‘breaking the bottle,’ a site-specific installation on display at new york city’s heller gallery. taking cues from the handmade glass defenses found on fences and rooftops worldwide, this work encrusts twelve household objects, including chairs, lamps, and a bearskin rug, in protective layers of broken shards. the collection is placed on a pedestal with dimensions matching the artist’s childhood living room, arranged to suggest a familiar domestic landscape.
