Stephen and George Laundry Line
…a site for public art on a laundry line in Ridgewood, Queens, active from May 2015 through January 2018.
The definition of spectacle has etymological roots in the Latin word, specere, to look. By using the laundry line as a stage for a highly local display, the Stephen and George Laundry Line attempts to highlight the voyeuristic aspect of living in a city. The shared backyard spaces in city blocks are sites for daily and accepted public displays of intimates accessed only by a string, but on the ground, they are more often forgotten, even forbidden places to the people who share it.
The Stephen and George Laundry Line is a space where the act of looking is celebrated and encouraged.
