“Reckoning” by Artist Shahzia Sikander

Screen Shot 2023 03 14 At 10.06.08 AM

Artist Shahzia Sikander has created a major new project on the theme of women and justice for a multimedia exhibition, Havah…to breathe, air, life, in Madison Square Park and the nearby Courthouse of the Appellate Division, First Department of the Supreme Court of the State of New York. The five-month exhibition marks the first collaboration between the Conservancy and courthouse.

Nearby on an adjacent lawn is Sikander’s video animation Reckoning (2020). The video depicts two forms that oscillate between warriors and flowering branches entangled in what could be a joust or dance. It is four minutes long and features music by artist Du Yun.
