Jory Rabinovitz: Sculpture Dérive
Saturday, August 25, 3pm
  
Sculptor Jory Rabinovitz leads a dérive on Governors Island. Popularized by French theorist Guy Debord, a dérive is an unplanned journey through a landscape, usually urban, on which the subtle aesthetic contours of the surrounding architecture and geography subconsciously direct the traveler(s), with the ultimate goal of encountering an entirely new and authentic experience. In the spirit of the dérive, Rabinovitz will create sculptural footwear for participants' peregrinations through the Island landscape.
