Earth of the human mind: Chung Kwang Young's Aggregations

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


[From the Sundaram Tagore Gallery website exhibition page]

Sundaram Tagore Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by acclaimed Korean artist Chun Kwang Young. The show—the artist’s first in New York in four years—features a comprehensive survey of work from his noted Aggregation series, which explores themes of harmony and conflict.

Chun Kwang Young began his career as a painter, but shifted his focus to paper sculpture in the mid-1990s. Incorporating elements of both painting and sculpture, Chun’s Aggregations are assemblages: freestanding and wall-hung amalgamations of small, triangular forms wrapped in antique mulberry paper, often tinted with teas or pigment.
