Tom Burr’s main installation at the Swiss Institute is a newly produced version of “The Storage Project,” a series of sculptures initially created in 1993 in an uninhabited unit of a Le Corbusier apartment building in France. The installation refers to the neighboring apartments where furniture and bikes spilled onto balconies. Evoking nightstand tables, armoires, and partial walls, “The Storage Project” explores the closet and its surrounding space.
