traces of paths

Yuji Agematsu


[The] multi-part sculpture 01-01-2014 – 12-31-2014 is comprised of 365 cellophane wrappers from cigarette packs arranged on shelving units throughout the gallery. For over 25 years Agematsu has filled a cellophane wrapper per day with detritus collected on walks through the streets of New York. The cellophanes in the exhibition are grouped together into the 12 months of 2014, each small, vitrine-like element calendaring the ebb and flow of the city’s discarded material.
