Shu Ohno Doodles

Drawing and Sculpture 

June 1, 2017 - August 2, 2017

The exhibition opened with 108 drawings and over the course of the next two months expanded to include sculptural work created on site. The artist, whose practice includes assemblage and bricolage techniques, invited gallery visitors to surrender electronic waste, small toys, and other objects that would otherwise be discarded. Scavenged and received objects were subsequently incorporated into the hyper-complex sculptural pieces that define Shu Ohno’s style. Like New York itself, the resulting artwork was molded day-by-day by the personal changes and specificities of space, environment, people, and objects that pass through and populate it, forging an intimate connection with the location.
