Mermaids’ play

“Mermaidsmischief,” done in 2009, won’t go down as one of John Chamberlain’s best sculptures, but it, along with other pieces on the Park Avenue plaza of the Seagram Building, are worth a visit. The artist twisted pieces of aluminum foil and these were blown up to a grand scale. The sculptures, up to 15 feet tall, are best viewed from a distance. Up close, the urge to touch the familiar-seeming surface is almost overwhelming.
