  • soap factory 514 2nd Street Southeast Minneapolis, MN, 55414 United States (map)

A solo exhibition as part of Piotr Szyhalski's ongoing project, Labor Camp.

History collides with the future in a new suite of projects from the Labor Camp. Three Factory Pieces presents a cohesive set of interventions that activates the Soap Factory, highlighting its unique features as a place of both industrial and art production. Working with materials ranging from asphalt paper, salt and insulation foam to prints, objects, video projections and generative sound structures, Szyhalski has constructed a complex network of ideas connecting poetics and politics.

Three Factory Pieces explores our notion of what it means to work, examining the multiplicity of ways in which we “produce.” What is “commodity” and “value”? 

Who are you?
What is this place?
Why are you here?
