Gyun Hur: So we can be near
So we can be near is a love letter, Gyun Hur’s contemplation of personal and collective memories of trauma, loss, beauty, yearning and irreconcilability. In a mirrored space under soft yellow light, Hur will drape the Sunroom’s floor with a large, vinyl print comprising a collection of recent biographical images gently covered with yellow silk flowers that have been hand-shredded. Over the period of this immersive exhibition, Hur will be present onsite, performing a meditation ritual that reflects on inevitability and love.
Hur has had solo and two-person shows at Pullman Historic District, Chicago, IL; and SCAD Gallery Central, Hong Kong. Recent group exhibitions have been held at BRIC, Brooklyn, NY; Dillon + Lee, New York, NY; The High Museum of Art, Atlanta, GA. Hur has performed and exhibited in Canada, China, Hong Kong, Italy, Turkey, and the United States.
