JONATHAN SCHIPPER
Detritus
Thru November 24, 2013

The Boiler

Noon to 6pm, Thursday through Sunday and by appointment
T: 718.599.2144
E: info@pierogi2000.com

Jonathan Schipper’s Detritus is an ever-changing environment composed of salt, human will, and hot water bathing. This installation consists of twelve tons of salt and a mechanism suspended from the ceiling by cables. By varying the length of the four cables, the machine moves about the room where it extrudes three-dimensional, abstracted objects in salt — representations of man-made objects that we take for granted as part of our every day world. Viewers have the option of observing these objects being created from the comfort of a hot tub.

The new All-Star band includes Mamady "Djelike" Kouyate, guitar, leader; Bebe Camara, vocal; Eudy Fernandez, trumpet; Oran Etkin, tenor sax, clarinet; Sylvain Leroux, flute, Fula flute, alto sax; Sam Dickey, guitar; Nick Cudahy, bass; Andy Algire, drums; Foluso Mimy, percussion.
