Sung I Chun and Stephanie Krimmel | Metatopology

April 4-27, Shift Gallery

Opening/First Thursday Art Walk – April 4, 5-8pm
Closing/Meet the Artists – April 27, 2-4pm

Sung I Chun and Stephanie Krimmel cooperate to present “Metatopology”, an experiential exhibit delving into the interplay between self and society.

Chun and Krimmel’s art practices share an interest in creating novel forms of self-portraiture, Chun through sculptures representing empirical measurements such as weight and volume of the body, and Krimmel with daily creative expression of physical and emotional experiences that take form as colorful and large-scale paper sculpture installations. 

In this exhibition both artists explore the vulnerable and two-way relationships between our personal intentions and societal expectations. Through diverse media, including interactive installations and thought-provoking sculptures, the exhibition explores how our perceptions of self and our ideals are dynamically shaped and transformed by the rich tapestry of social influences that surround us.

Music for this show has been curated by student DJs at c89.5, an award winning and influential radio station on the cutting edge of dance music worldwide. Owned by Seattle Public Schools with studios located at Nathan Hale high school, c89.5 offers students experience in production, programming, on-air presentation and music selection and is largely funded by community support.
