Un Body: new artworks by YOUNG JOON KWAK & JOSH MINKUS

Sending a big thanks of love and gratitude to both Young and Josh for  an awesome exhibition. Un Body was great. As always…y’all are fam!

Good times//////////////

Luv,

Happy Dog

UN BODY:

new artworks by YOUNG JOON KWAK & JOSH MINKUS


Young Joon Kwak and Josh Minkus present Un Body, an experiment in a collaborative approach to their seemingly divergent art practices:  Young Joon Kwak’s performance and object making plays with the reconfiguration of identifications that constitute subjectivity, enacting a sort of drag through her art;  Josh Minkus’ sculptural arrangements play with the idea of a sculptural frame or pedestal through shifts of scale and material juxtaposition.  

Through the process of installing Minkus’ sculptures with Kwak’s video, sculpture, photo, and drawings, the artists hope to highlight commonalities and contrasts, confusing and enriching each other’s work.  Un Body advances this idea, in which Kwak and Minkus invite the audience to take part in the artists’ investigation of their own difference, connections, and the spaces in-between.


Opening Reception: Friday, July 13, 6-10pm

Young, a 2011 Ragdale Fellow, will be using the proceeds to “cover the cost of materials, production, and promotion to complete this project in time for its public debut.”
