Millitzer Studio & Gallery: Saturday, 5 August 2017

Palais de Plastique
opening reception Saturday, August 5, 2017, 7–10 pm

August 5–31
on view by appointment

The Millitzer Studio & Gallery presents Palais de Plastique, an exhibition of new works by Rachel Youn. Inspired by “duplitecture,” the trend in China of copying Western architecture and cities, the works of Palais de Plastique complicate the determination of authenticity versus artifice. Appropriating European canonical motifs such as classical columns, marble, and genre painting, the stage is set for a lavish domestic setting. But—like copycat cities—the works reveal themselves to be earnest fakery, covered with a glossy skin. Utilizing kitschy décor, a Google image search for “western civilization,” and a research trip to HomeGoods, Palais de Plastique critiques the value placed on the original and how, when intersected with the formation of identity, it metaphorically—and literally—falls flat.
