The installation, presented by Dan Gunn Gallery (Berlin), is one of Smith’s most important and earliest installations and its first exhibition outside of the US.

Smith's performance received praise and mentions in The Art Newspaper, The Guardian, Complex, and Art Forum and was listed at the 10 of the best works at Frieze London by Artspace.
