Artist Sun K. Kwak: Enfolding 280 Hours. At Brooklyn Museum.

April 17, 2009

Korean-born, New York City based artist Sun K. Kwak is creating a site-specific work composed of approximately three miles of black masking tape in the fifth-floor Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Gallery. The mural-like piece will be affixed to the walls and pillars.

The exhibition’s title, Enfolding 280 Hours, references the number of hours the artist estimates it will take her and her assistants to install the piece in the gallery. Work on the installation will begin in early February, and Museum visitors will be able to view the work in progress. At the end of the Brooklyn presentation and after photographic documentation, the masking tape will be peeled off the columns and walls and discarded.

Drawing with masking tape has become her signature form of expression. Kwak continues to challenge perceptions of familiar surroundings with this technique, which for her is both meditative and performative.
