Installation of Torqued Ellipse IV & Intersection II

Time-lapse view Richard Serra’s Torqued Ellipse IV (1998) and Intersection II (1992) being installed in the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden at The Museum of Modern Art last autumn.

There’s an interesting article in Business Week about Pickhan Heavy Fabrication, the niche German steelworks that when not working with Serra on his monumental steel sculptures, fabricates customized pieces for oil drilling platforms, giant ship cranes and other large-scale industrial gear.
