Stay, create and present in Tokyo with 3331 Arts Chiyoda's residence program
Eun Jin Wang
Residence Period: 2018.12.25-2019.01.21
I am interested in exploring the meaning of space and its relationship with people. As a one-time installation-based artist, the biggest challenge I face is the preservation of my work, its storage, and its continuity. These questions allow me to think about the possibility between object-based work and space. Currently, I am developing an idea for a foldable paper sculpture to be place in a hidden/unusable space in a room, similar to the method of a pop-up book. I hope to make this installation a reality during this residency.
