18th - June 3rd, 2005
DM Contemporary is pleased to present the work of artists Tamiko Kawata, Eung Ho Park, and Sally Shore in an exhibition entitled: “Extraordinary”. These three artists use everyday objects as their primary medium. Safety pins are connected by Kawata to make dazzling geometric configurations; bottle caps or spoons are grouped by Park to yield compelling formations; and ribbons are woven together by Shore to achieve op-art-like spatial complexity. While the objects remain intact and recognizable in the resulting artworks, the artists manage to challenge and change our perception of them. Through artistic ingenuity the ordinary is
transformed - becoming extraordinary.
Coming from backgrounds as diverse as Japan, South Korea, and the USA, all three artists currently live and work in New York. Their work has been extensively exhibited in galleries, museums, and universities - nationally and internationally. While Kawata and Park may be better known for their large scale installations, this exhibit will focus on their medium and
smaller scale works.
There will be a private reception on Sunday, April 17th, after which the exhibition will be open to the public by appointment starting April 18th. An artist talk will take place on Thursday, April 28th. For directions and further information please contact Doris Mukabaa
