A city “dismantled” and cut into pieces by Kanemura is presented anew, this time accompanied by its ambient noise. But who exactly was trying to deliver something? What was supposed to be delivered? Or was nothing to be delivered in the first place? Includes booklet of extracts from the artist’s 2014 video work Dead Stock Companion, and autographed packaging.
