The Loop Show . Curated by China Adams
Artist China Adams first curatorial project brings together a group of artists whose work collectively presents a vision of the art object as something rich and vibrant born of cast off materials, the things we are leaving behind.
For the exhibition, multidisciplinary artist, Nuttaphol Ma, intervenes the NW 4th floor corner of a former storage facility-cum-gallery space to construct a baseball backstop that overlooks a field of intersecting concrete walls, a pitcher’s mound and what appears to be a vertical sewage pipe.  Ma makes a pilgrimage to Manzanar California to collect soil from a hollow tree.  The soil, mixed with manure purchased from Home Depot and lemongrass compost Ma has cultivated, roots the foundation for the pitcher’s mound within the installation.
