NARS Foundation is pleased to presents Constructed Landscapes, Season III International Residency Artist, Euyoung Hong’s solo exhibition.
The exhibition includes new works produced during her 3-month residency, including a large spatial construction, installation works and wall pieces. Constructed Landscape explores the complex relationship between urban space, capitalist production and politics, particularly concerning the ways in which things, spaces, and ideas are transformed in the process of capitalist urbanization. It also expands on the changing meaning and function of objects in relation to the system of value in the regime of capitalism. Hong’s sculptural installation works focus on experimentation with the perception of urban space – particularly concerning how things and ideas can be transformed within, react to, and become resistant to different structures and power relations – how the new can be produced in and through the complex relationship between heterogeneous elements in terms of the politics of space.
