This show focuses on how the human body relates to physical spaces, in the absence or intimate presence of unspecified people, on the example of work by three artsists; each of whom utilizes different media.
Kaoru Motomiya¹s Untitiled installation, comprised of over thirty delicate strings covered with shinning beads of resin and ending in organic, egg-like globes, hang from the ceiling over carefully arranged pieces of a broken mirror and black glass. As part of a very different piece, entitled Seven pieces for studio #11 of ISCP, Motomiya made casts from the empty spaces between the floorboards of her studio during a recent residency. In three small sculptures made of leather and clay she reproduces the empty spaces filled by her castes, sewing each closed with colored thread.
Thomas Chang¹s photographs reveal the interior of empty strip clubs, in non-business hours, thereby "stripping bare" the façade that dim lights, mirrors and loud music create.
Sung-ah Chang delights in the texture of hair. From photographs of her own hair, taken as she lies down, Chang produces large-scale drawings in charcoal in which her face is rarely visible. In Deep Sleeping, she captures waves of hair as they bend, twist, slump and fall during sleep; affecting a uniquely intimate portrait. Each of these artist succeeds in articulating the fragile boundary between private and public space.
