Anna K.E.’s Profound Approach and Easy Outcome will be the third iteration in a series of site-specific commissions by women artists on the Queens Museum’s Large Wall.
Measuring 140 feet wide by 45 feet high, this architectural highlight forms a magnificent diagonal and is highly visible from outside in Flushing Meadows Corona Park through floor-to-ceiling windows, visually drawing park-goers inside and impacting their experience once they arrive. Taking maximum advantage of the spatial dynamics of this significant wall, Profound Approach and Easy Outcome performs a complex reflection on artistic production, feminism, power, and the role of institutions. Among five visual elements affixed to the Wall, billboard-size photographic works will depict the artist in action in the galleries of the Metropolitan Museum, posing as the depicted characters in renowned master portraits by Otto Dix and Balthus.
