Nick Cave Soundsuits, University of North Texas on the Square

Category: Projects
Renowned artist, Nick Cave capped his period as artist-in-residence at UNT with a free exhibition of his Soundsuits and a collaborative performance piece featuring 30 newly created horse-like Soundsuits, which were made and performed with the help of UNT students. Cave’s Soundsuits — wearable sculptures that make sounds when the materials brush together — have been lauded internationally. Unified Fine Arts was integral in preparing this complex show. We were on site to unpack the boxed Soundsuits, assemble all mannequins, place and install each mannequin per the curator’s instructions and assemble the Soundsuits on the mannequins once they were placed.

Anish Kapoor De-Install, The Rachofsky House, Dallas

Category: Projects
We de-installed the Anish Kapoor sculpture, Black Stones and Human Bones, at the Rachofsky House using a 15,000-lb.-reach forklift and then transported it to Florida for its display in an art fair. We traveled to the rock’s delivery point and oversaw the installation at the gallery. After its Florida showing, we returned the sculpture to Dallas and re-installed it at a private residence.

Man and Pegasus, Carl Milles 1949 sculpture

Category: Projects
Unified de-installed this large Pegasus sculpture which stood in front of the Bryan Towers. We used a 90-ton crane to remove the piece that weighed 3,500 lbs and was mounted atop a 13’ granite pedestal. With such a large reach, we had to use an extra large crane to remove the piece from its location. Two riggers conducted the rigging from the top of specially erected scaffolding. The sculpture itself was fractured at the feet, so our rigging had to be perfect in order to align precisely. Which, of course, it did. We then transported the sculpture to the Crow Holdings warehouse on a flatbed trailer to accommodate low bridges, then unloaded the piece using a 6,000-pound-reach forklift. Read more:
