Kingwood Art Gallery opening reception: Emergence by Sang-Mi Yoo

Photo by the artist

Emergence features Sang-Mi Yoo's collection titled Emergence. The artist takes photographs of homes in the city that are at the edge of urbanization and tradition. After studying and selecting different architectural structures of residential houses, she transforms the original photos into organic patterns, using collages, drawings, paper/felt laser cuts and prints.

Various cookie-cutter homes resonate an archetypal architecture residing in Yoo's memory, questioning whether her memories of an ideal home were ever uniquely "Korean." The juxtaposed installation of photo-based prints and laser cut wool felt creates optical illusions through distortions of the original houses, which compares the notion of ideal home as a tangible subject versus illusion.

On view through June 12.
