Andrea Mastrovito
Washington Square By Night (2017)

Laser etching on stainless steel Disco Volante serving tray by Piero Lissoni for Alessi, 2008
40 x 40 cm (15 ¾ x 15 ¾ in)
Edition of 50

The image of Washington Square By Night is inspired by NYsferatu: Symphony of a Century by Andrea Mastrovito (2017), a public art project inspired by F. W. Murnau’s 1922 film, Nosferatu, and Bram Stoker’s story of Dracula.

NYsferatu is a rotoscope recreation of the original film, with an adapted storyline and its own score, set in modern times. The animation features multi-lingual title cards by members of New York City immigrant community groups who were engaged by the artist and the producer to collaborate on the project.
