New Haven, CT (2010) – The painting SQUARE WITH FOUR CIRCLES in Temple Plaza in New Haven, Connecticut, is both an installation and a performance. Felice Varini’s 110-foot-tall, multidimensional painting – his first public work in the United States – was treated as a performance during installation. The installation process took eight days in June 2010, was done during the day and night, and provided the public a unique glimpse into the artist’s process and the evolution of the work. The work remained installed for a year. During that time, Site Projects Inc., which commissioned the work, sponsored a series of programs that connect art, architecture, mathematics, and technology to Varini’s work. Varini will also be doing an artist’s residency in new Haven during the installation.
