Artist Carsten Höller Debuts a Nine-Story-Tall Slide in Miami
He created a tandem slide that rises 93 feet in the air—his first slide artwork to be installed in the U.S.—and debuted it by sliding down with Chloë Sevigny
“I dissect fun in my work,” says artist Carsten Höller. In Miami this past weekend, Höller’s first work in United States made its debut. In permanent installation at the entrance of the Aventura Mall, a tandem slide now rises 93 feet in the air.

It’s a towering artwork that invites the public to interact with and activate it.
