A collaborative installation that figuratively brings TRACTION COMPANY to NAPOLEON

subTRACTION is TRACTION COMPANY’s first collaborative sculptural project, a one-sixth scale model of the collective’s gargantuan sculpture shop. Inspired by CITYWIDE’s celebration of collaboration, subTRACTION represents in miniature the fruit of six years of collective effort—the ongoing transformation of a former trolley manufacturing warehouse into a fully equipped hub of artistic activity. Conceived of and constructed by TRACTION COMPANY’s 13 members, subTRACTION invites viewers to encounter the facility’s shared studios, tools, and detritus on an intimate, personal level.
