chashama presents Kyung Woo Han’s Green House, at the Donnell Library Windows, 20 w. 53rd St between 5th and 6th ave. (across from MoMA).
Kyung Woo Han chooses well-known images as the source of his work. Using the straight and narrow perspective of the window, he creates illusions out of real objects and real space. With carefully selected spaces and conscious placements of ordinary objects, certain vantage points construct illusions as the mind fills in the gaps of perception.
Space is a crucial aspect of Han’s work. Using physical space to construct installations that engage the viewer, an interaction is created between the reality of objective space and human perception. Often inspired from the space itself, many of his works are directly related to the specific locations of the installment and are exclusively created for the site.
Kyung Woo Han was born in Seoul Korea. He has attended Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture, 2010. He has an MFA in Film, Video and New Media at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and graduated from Seoul National University with a BFA in sculpture.
