A minimalist artist, Keith Sonnier is known for his use of neon lights in architectural contexts. His Tunnel of Tears was installed for the reopening of P.S.1 in 1997. The artist uses two fluorescent light fixtures, one blue and one pink, to form a series of neon loops. The individual fixtures are positioned at two different heights along the walls of the chimney. Like much of his work, Sonnier considers the architecture of the exhibition’s location in order to change our perception of the space.

Keith Sonnier's Tunnel of Tears is in the foyer of the lobby.
