Sun K. Kwak: Untying Space

January 15 - April 29, 2018

Using black masking tape as her primary medium, Sun K. Kwak reinvigorates and redefines architecturally inert space with rhythmic, expressive and dynamic lines and shapes.

Untying Space is part of Kwak’s “Space Drawing” series, which she has been practicing since 1995. In this, her first solo exhibition in Canada, the artist will create a site-specific “Space Drawing” in CUAG’s mezzanine space over a two-week period.

“My drawings are born through the communion between the material and the spiritual,” Kwak has said, “wherein my own self is constantly reflected emptying itself.”

Kwak aims to reify “new pictorial reality,” reflecting inherent interlocutory elements of the university art gallery as a site of creative encounters.
