Traveling all the way from China, the mobile bike sculpture titled M2B will be peddled by French-artist and creator Niko de la Faye up the Citi Summer Streets route.

M2B is a mobile kinetic sculpture. The sculpture, housed on the back of the tricycle, is a traditional representation of the universe that is found in both Eastern and Western cultures. The sculpture itself has been fastened to a traditional Chinese tricycle. Originally fabricated in 2011, the sculpture has traveled 3,400 km between Beijing and Hong Kong.

The artwork will now travel northbound on the Citi Summer Streets route starting at the Foley Square Rest Stop making three thirty minute stops along the way. At each location, the artist will share footage, of past journeys, both stills and film, of M2B.


LOCATION:
Foley Square Rest Stop (10 am – 10:30 am)
Lafayette St. & 17th St. (11 am – 11:30 am)
Park Avenue & 70th St. (12 pm – 12:30 pm)
