13th Ballad is an installation by THeaster Gates. This work is an extension of the artist’s 12 Ballads for Huguenot House, which  coproduced by the MCA Documenta 13. In his show,  the introduction talks about how he related the past work and the houses which I really like. THe choice of material is between banal and nostalgia, the material he brought into the reveal several layer of meanings. In the sense of relation to the original space, and the recreation of and object combining together, which is a very strong echo to his original ideas of the project.
