The New York Times, via our very own polar news service South Polar Gazette alerts us to this piece trailing an upcoming performance art piece taking place at the Wollman Rink in Central Park, NYC this week.

The artist Pierre Huyghe is responsible for a musical performance by a 42- piece orchestra recreating his own search for the elusive albino penguin of Antarctica.

The performance will be happening this week and will be filmed, they say. Those in New York wanting to take part should arrive around 6:30 in the evening to catch the event.

It looks amazing: if you're going, let us know what you find!
