Surf’s Up! A New Public Art Installation Is Coming to 17th Street

Surf’s Up! A New Public Art Installation Is Coming to 17th Street

Virginia Beach, Va. (Aug. 7, 2020) — A new art installation will ride the waves to the Virginia Beach oceanfront starting Aug. 10-14.

Hive Public Space, Inc. submitted the winning design for the installation based on a call from the City of Virginia Beach Cultural Affairs Department.

“Our installation aims to capitalize on Virginia Beach as a surf destination,” said Alexandra Gonzalez, president and co-founder of Hive Public Space, Inc. “We believe this installation will attract an audience and instill a memorable experience deserving of its own hashtag.”

“Barreled” celebrates Virginia Beach’s surfing culture and takes inspiration from one of the most sought out and short-lived experiences in surfing, riding through the barrel of a wave. Barrels are formed from powerful swells that rapidly travel from deep to shallow waters. The energy from the lower portion of the wave falls behind from the force of friction of the ocean floor. Meanwhile the top of the wave continues and collapses over the lower portion.

Catching a ride through a barrel takes mediation between the right ocean conditions, a surfer’s skill, and their timing. It’s a rare moment that at most last only seconds. All we can do is chase and savor these experiences.

“Our installation takes place in the form of four acrylic arches that mimic the barrel experience,” said Gonzalez. “Capturing a moment in time within the barrel, the piece allows the viewers to inhabit and move through the experience.”

The installation is constructed out of a tubular steel system and acrylic panels that represent the ocean’s oscillating balance of power and fragility. Each arch unfolds from wall to ceiling and ends with a seating component that encourages human interactions.

Each steel “wave” in “Barreled” is also spaced out perfectly for a socially distanced selfie opportunity!

Thanks to generous donations from the Virginia Beach business community, the installation will be accompanied by “Broken Current,” a mural by recognizable local artist Navid Rahman that illustrates powerful rip currents and tidal currents created by ocean waves. Last year, Rahman created another mural for the City of Virginia Beach, which is located in the main lobby of the Bayside Recreation Center.

A formal unveiling ceremony will take place once we are safely able to do so.

Artist Bio: 

Navid Rahman’s work has always been a form of world building, creating environments with a blurred line of whimsical fantasy and reality.

Navid creates striking scenes of sari clad women, enchanted forests, whimsical organic shapes using colorful patterns filled with meticulous detail. Using a mixed medium of tools and supplies, he is obsessive in his attention to line weight details and the natural flow of the work and the relationship it has with the public space.
