KLAF2019: Superstructure by Nakayama Hitori and Jacky Cheng
“Superstructure” is a term used in the building industry to refer to denote something that is erected on or above the ground. This exhibition aims to open the viewers’ eyes on how they observe the form that is reduced to the simplest of symmetry and shape. By doing so, this merges the thin line between art and architecture.
Two artists will be featured in Superstructure: Nakayama Hitori and Jacky Cheng. Hitori is a Japanese conceptual artist who uses mathematics to formulate his prototype sculptures. One of his notable commissions includes the 26m H ‘One Blue Sky’ Penang 2008. As for Cheng, the paper artist uses hand-cut techniques on stacked archival paper.
