EIGHTEEN: EXHIBITION OPENING @ USAGI GALLERY
September 15, 2016

Dev Harlan
Cheryl Wing-Zi Wong
Jayoung Yoon

EIGHTEEN is an exhibition of three artists working in sculpture, installation and transformation over time. The title of the show references the spatial concept of Usagi Gallery; architect Sou Fujimoto’s design is based on eighteen movable panels that divide, striate and give impermeability to the space. In EIGHTEEN, the panels are used not as surfaces to display 2D work, but as interventions in space that divide time.

Sculpture is investigated as a substrate to experience time– through motorized kinetics, video projection or dynamic shadows. Here, the sequence of artworks  reframe our perception of time.

Usagi Gallery
163 Plymouth Street, Brooklyn, New York
Opening: Thursday, September 15th, 7-10pm
On view: September 15 – October 14th

Inglewood Urbanstage: Construction as Performance is a month-long architectural sculpture, construction performance.

Composed of wooden modules, Urbanstage is reconstructed once every week, for four weeks, to produce four distinct

iterations of transformative architecture. Urbanstage will be activated weekly by curated civic conversations and workshops

focused on urban issues in Inglewood and Los Angeles: transportation, Autopia, Surfurbia and water in LA, urban

development and shared futures based on food, culture, and diversity.

IN SITU: A PROJECT BY CHERYL WING-ZI WONG AND CLIFFORD OWENS
January 27, 2015

IN SITU uses Nine Square Grid (9SG), a pedagogical tool for architectural design problem-solving developed by John
Hejduk, as a conceptual point of departure for a 30-minute, audience-sensitive performance. IN SITU utilizes the
movable walls in the exhibition space in conjunction with choreographed movements that directly engage with the
audience, creating spatial and corporeal relationships. Link to SVA event calendar here.

COIR Design Build – Coconut Composite Board!
August 17, 2014

Coconuts form a major component of the Thai diet. Our composite boards are made from the remaining coconut husk and shell, which are often discarded once the coco meat and milk are extracted. Once coconut material is dried, it is then finely crushed, mixed with a 5% adhesive, then formed and pressed in a hot-press machine. Here, we have embossed a patterned decor on the boards, referenced from the various religious and cultural groups within the Kadeejeen community. More images here.

 

COIR Design Build – Project Construction Drawings
August 16, 2014

COIR design build course, taught at INDA, Chulalongkorn University, explores the coconut and its versatility for sustainable use and reuse. The project will be deployed as a permanent addition to the community of Kadeejeen in Bangkok, Thailand. Over six weeks, we use all parts of the coconut to design and construct a transformative food cart/mobile public space, and new building material: coconut composite boards. See our final design and construction drawings on our blog.
