Tom Sachs has launched his fourth solo exhibit at the Sperone Westwater gallery in New York City. Titled “Objects of Devotion,” the immersive showcase will highlight an extensive array of Sachs’s handmade projects—under his bricolage ethos—that were created from everyday found materials such as plywood, Tyvek, and other common items. Notable artworks in the upcoming exhibit include The Cabinet (2014) wall-mounted sculpture that was constructed out of Con Edison barriers, rock samples from Sachs’ Space Program 2.0: MARS (2012) installation, and the infamous McMaster/Toilette Paper Holder (1996) sculpture.

Ahead of the opening, Sachs engaged in a rocket test just outside of his workshop in lower Manhattan—portrayed in the video above. “Objects of Devotion” is currently on view at the Sperone Westwater gallery until October 28.
