“Hidden liberty”, the walled Statue of Liberty

Emanuele D'Angelo

Inaugurated in 1886, it is the most iconic symbol of New York City, we are talking about the Statue of Liberty created by the French Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi.
With its 93 meters high it stands on the Hudson River in the center of Manhattan Bay and is visible from 40 km away.

The No-to-scale studio has created a unique project that features the famous statue donated by the French people to the United States of America.

The project is entitled “Hidden Liberty” and provocatively the two designers of the Asian studio have imagined and built a huge wall right in front of the imposing statue.

“Hidden liberty” is clearly a very provocative project, which wants to question everyone about the concept of freedom.

The Statue of Liberty, in fact, acquired importance also for the immigrants who in the second half of the 19th century arrived in America in search of a new future.

But today the studio is wondering: for whom exactly is that fire burning inside the flashlight? Are we sure that everyone remembers the meaning of the incandescent light that pierces the heavy fog in New York Harbor?

We leave the answer and all the photos of this project to you.
