Craft Alliance Grand Center: Friday, 28 August 2009

Bound Lines: an installation by Mi-Kyoung Lee.
August 28, 2009 - January 17, 2010
FREE Opening Reception on Friday, August 28, 6 – 9pm
This exhibition is in conjunction with Innovations in Textiles 8, a collaborative city wide investigation of textile art in 19 area galleries.

Watch Mi-Kyoung Lee create her installation in the gallery, Wednesday, August 26 through Friday, August 28.

Bound Lines, Mi-Kyoung Lee’s site-specific installation, features large-scale sculptures as well as wall pieces. Her wall pieces, which she refers to as “material drawings,” are small line drawings of natural forms made out of wool felt, cotton balls, silk and wax.

Through knotting lines of monofilament (a thin string made from a single fiber), human hair, thread and wax, Lee’s work speaks delicately to how we are all connected to each other. Bound Lines is “a portrait of my recent awareness of human connections as a mother,” explains Lee. “The process of connecting small threads together becomes a metaphor for human existence.”

Gallery Hours: Wednesday – Saturday, 12-6pm; Sunday 12-5pm; Closed on Monday and Tuesday.
