nothing for everyone

Crossing the police line on 5th and Union last Wednesday evening on the way to Lead Pencil Studio‘s new project, I started to question if I had gone to the right place. I had. Right place and right time, early even. I was told that perhaps a bank robbery had happened across the street– but no one really new the outcome. This set a strange tone for the opening of Annie Han and Daniiel Mihalyo’s most recent work, Retail/Commercial – Nothing for Everyone. Being one of the first to arrive to the opening felt almost post-apocalyptic.

I was greeted by a series of converged retail interiors, many of which were reclaimed units from local storefronts that had recently gone out of business – all of them empty. The 4,300-square-foot space was able to seamlessly recount nearly every retail encounter I’ve ever had. It was surreal, smart, and hauntingly appropriate – you should really check it out.
