Suyama Space is overtaken by a chaotic, invasive jumble of plumbing and pipes run riot. The arteries and veins of the structure that typically lurk behind the walls and beneath the weathered floorboards are here aggressively laid bare. They disrupt our ability to navigate the space and threaten to take it over entirely like some invasive organism. The open ends of numerous pipes emit abstract sounds derived entirely from field recordings made in the empty gallery, adding another layer of mystery and stimulating the imagination with vague ideas and associations. The pipes themselves, at first appear so ancient and massive, yet are in reality fashioned by hand from plastic, wood, and paint. Catalogue, essay by David Abel.
