VIDEO OF THE DAY: JACCO OLIVIER

Dutch artist Jacco Olivier has made his New York City public art debut by installing six short videos on monitors located throughout Madison Square Park. The display is best seen in the evening, when the colorful animations shine brightly, bringing life to the dark park (and making them easier to find, as they blend more into their surroundings during the day). Consisting of three new works and three older ones, the show highlights Olivier’s playful stop-animation style, in which he creates a painting that he photographs as he continually changes it, resulting in child-friendly narratives of a bug trying to turn over off its back, a deer resting in the woods, and a rabbit hopping through the grass. Stumble, Hide, Rabbit Hole, Bird, Deer, and Home will remain on view through March 12, but you can also catch Olivier’s Revolution at City Center as part of the New Museum’s new video series there.
