Myung Gyun, You: Forest of History

August 18 through September 23, 2017

Fountain Gallery, 330 Main St., Lafayette

Korean artist Myung Gyun, You’s abstract installations impose themselves upon their environment, asking visitors to consider their own place in the world. Inspired by nature, the large, organic masses You creates simultaneously feel like life and the shadow of it. The old, dyed newspapers used to create the work take on a new life, encouraging the viewer to consider cultural identity, nationality, and heritage as constructs within the context of natural phenomena. 

Join us Friday, August 18, at 5:30PM for an opening reception featuring comments by the artist.  In addition, visitors are encouraged to come see the artist work from 7-10PM on Thursday, August 17 during Boiler Bridge Bash.
