About & Images

For his 2017 project at The Warehouse, artist Shuji Mukai was invited to create one of his architectural interventions in the men’s and women’s restrooms. Over the course of nine days, and with two assistants, Mukai covered every surface in these spaces with his nonsensical symbols. Acrylic paint, marker, and tape generate a variety of textures and layers, distorting and complicating our perception of the rooms.
