Miquel Barceló talks about his outdoor sculpture, Gran Elefandret, with Liza Béar. The 26-foot bronze sculpture, an outsize elephant balancing on its trunk, was cast at Alfa Arte, Eibar, in the Basque country, and shipped by freighter from Bilboa, Spain, in a 33-foot crate. The piece has previously been exhibited in Avignon, France. Its New York installation and the press conference on September 13th are courtesy Marlborough Gallery and the New York City Parks Department. Filmed by Liza Béar.
