Artwork text

In this film Gordon Matta-Clark explored and documented the New York City underground. The artist chose various places (New York Central Tracks, Grand Central Station, 13th Street, Croton Aqueduct in Highgate, ...) to show the variety and complexity of the underground spaces and tunnels in the metropolitan area.
