Héctor Zamora proposes to materialize space intervention towards a transformed perception of our environment.

Created to be passed through, the objective of this work is to encourage a dialogue between the spectator, organic form and geometry. This experience, detached from the implications of structural formalism, detonates an individual dialogue with space and stimulates poetic perception.

Volatile Topography is the latest of Zamora’s approach to funicular geometry as a tool to redefine urban space—in this case over the Oncheoncheon River Canal. His intervention consists of mesh of intersecting ropes defying gravity and flowing in the air thanks to helium balloons attached to each node. Furthermore, the volatile space, slightly modified by the wind, will create nimble variations, pleats and deformations on the mesh.

Highly elaborate, precise and touching, this installation will result in a three-dimensional drawing transformed into passable landscape.

New York–based artist Xavier Cha incorporates video and installation in performances that play with multiple perspectives and deferred access, reflecting our fractured contemporary experience.

For her new work Body Drama, Cha transforms the gallery into a mysterious setting in which an actor performs while wearing a body-mounted camera. In between performances the resulting footage is projected on the wall, offering viewers two versions of the same experience, both of which center on disorienting psychological and physical space.

Korean sculptor Park Chan-girl constructs metal sculptures from thin metal layers he calls “sliced images” that resemble three dimensional topography charts. He also meticulously welds thousands of small steel nuts into a delicately textured skin, moulding it into human and animal forms.



He received his BFA in Sculpture from Chungnam National University and his MFA in Fine Arts from KyungHee University and has exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions across Korea and China.
