Sung Eun Park: Pleasant Exchanges

March 6 - March 14

Free
a mixed media work, primarily using turf, first as a tri-panel backdrop for part of the piece, over which what seem to be shadows from tree branches are cast, and secondly as the shadow—in the form of a human's silhouette—of the central object, which seems to be a chair with very tall legs. Behind this, black and white geese walk in a line.

The COVID-19 pandemic has urged us to reflect on our mortality. The intensity of this inevitable shadow forces us to accept the prospect of death—an acceptance that impacts the way we lead our lives.

In each work, Park weaves a narrative that allows you to follow the journey through a surreal world, a journey that will drive you to stay immersed in the present, free yourself from the past and the future, and to contemplate the dignity and value of your life.

Sung Eun Park is an artist working across the medium of drawing, sculpture and painting. In her current body of work, Park explores the conflicts between humanity’s desperate hopes and reality. Such conflicts occur between desire and forbiddance, desire and the ideal, consciousness and unconsciousness, and instinct and rationality in our human nature.
