Lever house art collection, New York
Between being born and dying is the latest installation from the artist Barbara Kruger. The piece covers
all of the Lever house’s windows, both inside and out, in addition to the floor. kruger creates phrases
that emote situations, interactions using letters, many as high as seventeen feet.
‘I think what i’m trying to do is create moments of recognition. to try to detonate some kind of feeling
or understanding of lived experience. I try to deal with the complexities of power and social life, but as
far as the visual presentation goes I purposely avoid a high degree of difficulty’
