To mark the tenth anniversary of September 11th, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council presented the U.S. premiere of “Where Does the Dust Itself Collect?” by artist Xu Bing.

Utilizing dust that Xu Bing collected from the streets of Lower Manhattan in the aftermath of 9/11, the installation recreates a 25-by-20-foot field of dust across the gallery floor that is punctuated by the outline of a Chan Buddhist poem, revealed as if the letters have been removed from under the dust. The powerful piece was featured in outlets from the Wall Street Journal to NY1.
