Published on the occasion of the exhibition Nightmare Bathroom at Del Vaz Projects with works by Sula Bermúdez-Silverman, Nicki Green, Candice Lin, Roksana Pirouzmand & Bri Williams. Curated by the gallery’s director, Jay Ezra Nayssan, the exhibition and publication "has a highly-researched and ambitious thesis, arguing that while 18th- and 19th-century imperial trade routes shaped co-temporal European plumbing design (take the sourcing of porcelain, for instance), the bodies behind these colonial origin stories have historically been erased from the bathroom space. Nayssan posits that Western hygienic anxieties came to parallel the larger fear-driven marginalization of subjects who were/are not male, white, able-bodied, or cisgender." (Vanessa Holyoak for CARLA)
