San Francisco-based artist Primitivo Suarez-Wolfe's installation of domestic hallways at Open Satellite, Set Apart from Memory by Time, is in three repeating sections. Each section is exactly the same—same amount and type of wallpaper on the wall, same two lit sconces, same mirror, same molding—except for the growing negative space around it, which is represented in areas of unfinished wall studs.
You can, of course, travel this in reverse, or look at it from the exterior, where it looks like three ascending billboards or drive-in movie screens.Suarez-Wolfe's works are based on home, including the most well-known—a large wooden tumbleweed deposited in the California desert, made of interlocking house shapes, with road signs pointing to it (all of which were stolen due to their awesomeness). He's put himself in the company of surrealists and designers, and contemporary artists Andrea Zittel and Alex Schweder and Bruce Nauman, and at Open Satellite, a slew of non-art associations fly up, too: creepy Victorian theater with its Gothic wallpaper, the community redemption ceremonies of Habitat for Humanity, the 1990s book on architectural theory called Stud, Galileo's telescopic view, the zoom-out endings of certain movies, Russian dolls, collapsing cups, arpeggios. You might like to walk this hallway yourself and see what comes to mind.
