NYC gas station turned pop-up sheep pasture

An industrial gas station in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City has been transformed into a sculptural sheep pasture — an urban creative intervention from art collector michael shvo and paul kasmin gallery, NYC. Debuting to the public since September 17th,sheep station‘ is a pop-up, surrealist landscape which sets dozens of sculpted farm animals fixed amongst gas pumps and fire extinguishers in a grass-filled getty station. 25 of late french artist françois-xavier lalanne’s epoxy stone and bronze sheep sculptures graze within the white picket fence bound rolling lawn. The installation showcases the largest flock ever shown together of lalanne’ iconic ‘moutons’. The station will be host to a new public art program in the center of the high line arts district and will showcase rotating exhibitions as a temporary art space.
