Monuments for the Rejected
The latest exhibit in the chashama 266 space in the Garment District.
"All of the wood pieces in this exhibition are filled with agony. They were originally scaffolding used in construction sites to build the present of New York City. However, they were thrown away after they became useless as supporting materials after becoming broken, rotten or washed out."
Eunjin Kim paid attention to their history of pains at the moment she discovered them; she tried to preserve their scars themselves as they were, in order to remember their forgotten history. The spiral structure of scaffolding which resembles that of DNA stands alone unlike the past when they just supported others. Their fractures are supported by kinds of prosthetic frames neatly manufactured by using cutting-edge 3D printing technology. Their stories hidden under the surface are disclosed vividly through empty spaces of those wire frames.
Monuments for the Rejected will be on display at chashama 266 from April 22 until May 3.
