About
“Contemporary art at the crossroads of sculpture and craft”
The ACC presents an exhibition featuring contemporary artworks that combine the best of two disciplines highlighting the role of human hands. Homo Faber: Craft in Contemporary Sculpture sheds a new light on contemporary sculpture after 1990 by showcasing sculpture works created with crafting skills.
This exhibition represents a formalistic approach that highlights the validity of the genre at the crossroads of sculpture and craft. It promulgates an understanding of humans as “homo faber,” beings who create things with tools, while presenting an allegory of contemporary sculptors, accentuating the political, social, and cultural contexts of the formality of sculpture works, and offering a new interpretation of the current status of contemporary sculpture.
“An exhibition featuring the works of 14 artists from seven countries, including Korea, China, Vietnam, and Cambodia.”
Expect a program offering an opportunity to immerse yourself in the beauty of contemporary sculpture and craft works created by 14 artists from seven countries.
