DESCRIPTION

Well-known for large-scale, interactive installations, Nick Dong has always enticed the viewer to literally step into and explore elaborately and impeccably rendered worlds reflecting his own values and vision. "Be-longing-En-lightening" is comprised of two distinct but related spaces, and is meant to invite or provoke us to explore both spirituality and intimacy, two subjects the artist values highly and wishes us to contemplate. Dong is intensely interested in how we shape and share values through human connections, and the spaces are familiar--a room and a staircase--yet fantastical, allowing us to taste the flavor of the artist's point-of-view while wandering through our own journey. www.studiodong.com
