Sven Sachsalber

New York, NY 10014
(Enter on Horatio St., between Hudson and 8th Ave.)


Presented as part of Performa 15, Sven Sachsalber's Hands is a durational performance made in collaboration with the artist's father, where both men attempt to assemble a 13,200 piece jigsaw puzzle depicting The Creation of Adam, a detail from Michelangelo's mural in the Sistine Chapel in Rome.

Given the size and complexity of the jigsaw puzzle it is impossible to determine if, or when, the performance will end. The performance will be on view during gallery hours, Tuesday to Saturday, noon to 6 PM.
