This weekend is the last chance to see Hong Seon Jang’s Instruments at Munch Gallery. Showcasing sculptural installation pieces that include menacing organ pipes and dazzling alloys that have absolutely no “value,” the solo exhibition explores the concept of contextual displacement and societal power struggle.
“Mainly, this show is about tradition… good and evil… life and death. Mostly the objects are found objects. I add a little bit of fabrication and a little handcraftsmanship, especially the aluminum foil piece, Minerals–which has contains all the references of power struggle. It references to the power struggle over important resources… oil, coffee–it’s symbolic. It’s all but rareness, and what’s available and what’s not.”
– Hong Seon Jang.
Jang’s style is cerebral, but effortless. All six pieces work together to form a worthwhile exhibition that cleverly undermines the traditional paradigms that exist within modern society. Instruments will be on display until Sunday, March 9th.
