LEE SUNG-KUEN: INTERCONNECTED
From October 23rd through December 4th, Waterfall Mansion & Gallery will present the first major solo exhibition of renowned Korean artist, Lee Sung-Kuen. Lee’s figurative works, which represent organic life and growth, are composed of thin, short-length wires and brightly colored knots. The netted steel volumes that he produces juxtapose the heaviness of metal and the light, creating a fluid dynamic between shape and space that both penetrates and expands the space the work inhabits. In an effort to harmonize material substance and immaterial space, Lee disappears the distance between shape and space, and instead emphasizes the shifting mobility and elasticity of his pieces. In this way, the pieces do not form or become an object, but instead permeate and adapt to their surroundings, enriching the space around it and creating a unique sculpture of situation.
