Marlborough Gallery has just installed an upside-down bronze elephant in the triangle on 14th Street, factually titled Elefandret by artist Miquel Barceló. The 26-foot tall sculpture is balanced on its trunk, defying gravity "with its massively inverted weight." Tell us: better than plastic zip ties, no?
