Jong Oh Installation at DeCordova Museum


Sculpting with Air: Ian McMahon and Jong Oh
On View Apr 20, 2018 – Sep 30, 2018
Linde Gallery, Foster Galleries, deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum

Sculpting with Air: two contemporary sculptors will create very different site-specific artworks at deCordova by shaping the intangible element of air. Jong Oh fashions almost imperceptible structures with string, wire, and Plexiglas, focusing on transparency, lightness, and expansiveness. Ian McMahon creates voluminous, pillow-like forms using an innovative technique of sprayed plaster. Despite the enormous contrasts, the two sculptors’ work is complementary. Both reshape space by exploring tension, balance, and force. They challenge our perceptions of gravity and perspective by creating forms that expand into the galleries.

Here are the installation photos from Jong Oh’s two-person exhibition “Sculpting With Air” at deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum.
