adverb & adjective

    • in position 

A prevalent element all artist studios have in common is a chair. No matter the type, style, or medium of work created by the artist, the studio chair is an important tool for their creative practice. In this exhibition, artwork by twenty nine artists can be viewed while sitting in the artist’s studio chair, which will be situated in front of their work. While viewing artwork from the artist’s own studio chair, visitors can ponder each piece and hopefully gain a glimpse of the artist’s vision. Jung has been selected as a one of 29 artists to participate.

This piece is comprised of 1,865,400,000 individual grains of silver sand, harvested by a reclusive tribe of mermen from the bottom of the Mariana Trench. Once the grains were collected, using 24 carat gold tweezers, they were transported to the surface in thimble sized buckets carried by expertly trained narwhal, by the tip of their tusk.
