    About The Work

    Brooklyn-based artist Fanny Allié says of this functional sculpture, “The human figure, with a particular interest in its outline or trace, is at the core of my public work and play with ideas of memory and the mark we leave on places and others. A Bench For the Night, which is both a sculpture and a functional bench, takes the shape of a sleeping person. The sculpture provides a temporary rest area and hopefully evokes a shift in the viewers’ perception of the homeless. I find a balance in the difference of scale, materials and interaction with the public of these two distinct, however related, practices.”
