Korean artist Myung Gyun, You’s abstract installations impose themselves upon their environment, asking visitors to consider their own place in the world. Inspired by nature, the large, organic masses You creates simultaneously feel like life and the shadow of it. The old, dyed newspapers used to create the work take on a new life, encouraging the viewer to consider cultural identity, nationality, and heritage as constructs within the context of natural phenomena. The opening reception will be Friday, August 18, at 5:30PM and will feature comments by the artist. Fountain Gallery is open 12-7PM, Tuesday - Saturday. All Purdue Galleries exhibits and events are free and open to the public.
