Outdoor Exhibition – Taryn Simon: The Pipes
September 16 - September 26
Taryn Simon returns to MASS MoCA with her large-scale outdoor sculpture The Pipes. What began as an oversized concrete instrument for a cacophony of global mourning in Simon’s work An Occupation of Loss (The Armory, 2016) will be populated by the sounds, collective call and response, and movements of a living public. The 11 structures that make up the installation – which Simon designed in collaboration with Shohei Shigematsu of architecture firm OMA – are an immersive experience, offered to the public as a sacred space for reflection, impromptu performance, and stargazing.
