New Hampshire artist Soo Sunny Park will create a new, site-specific work that will transform the Currier’s windowed Putnam Gallery into an immersive sculptural environment that explores the effect of light on visual perception. Luminous sculptural forms will fill the gallery space—suspended from the ceiling and placed on the floor—capturing and reflecting the light which fills the gallery. The sculpture will be animated by shifts in daylight caused by the time of day, weather conditions and changing seasons, as well as your changing perspective as you walk through the installation, creating a highly individualized experience with the work. This exhibition is the latest project in the Contemporary Connections series, a platform for exhibiting new work by New England artists made in dialogue with the Currier’s collection, regional histories, or, as in the case of Park’s installation, the architecture of the Museum.
This exhibition is sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts, Dorothea & David Jensen, Gloria Wilcher Exhibition Fund, Hitchiner Manufacturing Company, M. Christine Dwyer & Michael Huxtable and the Artist’s Resource Trust. We are proud to have Art New England as media sponsor for this exhibition.
