Installation Intervention – Sarah Lucas/Andrew MacDonald

For my fifth Installation Intervention I’m taking over and replacing a sculpture in a space designed by Sarah Lucas with Yellow.

But for the images presented as my new ongoing project Installation Interventions, I’m throwing out all the stops. Interior view of MOMA, Museum of Modern Art, in New York.
