LOS ANGELES, CA (May 15th, 2013) - LA Artcore is pleased to present a solo show with Korea-based artist Sik Chang.

Chang's sculptures reveal an artist whose project is driven by the desire to transform our everyday experience through the combining and recontextualization of objects.

 

Yet, Chang's personal travels to Africa have expanded the range of such examples everyday objects. These unexpected combinations — an African figurative sculpture or toy representing a family on a handmade boat floats above water within the confines of a piece of Western glassware — readily dispense complex narratives of an increasingly interconnected and culturally-vivid planet that ask questions about our place within it. Chang's works directly implicate the viewer in this complex passage, not as a remote viewer but as a participant: Chang's works confront our physical space with a host of objects whose contexts have been dislocated and re-contextualized, their unlikely proximities — both cultural and historical — form the basis of a truly cross-cultural dialogue.

 

Having completed his MFA at Cranbrook Academy of Art, Chang's primary influences are the Dada movements of the twentieth century (1916-1923), those artists who first merged reproduced images and objects to mediate an increasingly mechanized, urbanized and industrialized environment. Chang has been exhibited at the National Museum of Contemporary Art in Seoul, Korea as well as the National Museum of Modern Art among exhibiting widely in group and solo exhibitions in Korea, Japan and the United States.
