An Upcoming Solo Exhibition at Redux Contemporary • Charleston, SC • May 15-June 13, 2015
Capriccio (an architectural fantasy) by Sang-Mi Yoo focuses on the ideal home through prints, lasercut wool felts and their three-dimensional conversions. The reality of finding ideal home is explored through American norms. Her work is based on her childhood memories from Korea and everyday encounters of standardized residential buildings, including her West Texas living experience. Like an animal’s camouflage, this homogeneity provided her with a means to blend into her neighborhood. Her installations of large-format prints and lasercuts are based upon patterns created from cookie-cutter homes found in Lubbock, Houston and other global locations. The rows of houses and floorplans become abstract constructs subject to gravity and shadow play surrounding the materials, questioning whether the ideal home is a tangible subject or an illusion.
Opening Reception: Friday, May 15, 6-9 pm
Exhibition on view: May 15 - June 13, 2015
