I Ching In America, Hexagram #32
Shoebox Projects Residency Reception: 
December 2, 2017 3-6pm

660 South Avenue 21 #3 
Los Angeles CA 90031

Shoebox Projects invites you to view artist-in-residence Chenhung Chen’s I Ching In America, Hexagram #32 installation on view Saturday December 2nd from 3-6pm.

In her practice, Los Angeles artist Chen references the physical and suggestive capabilities of line, material and space. She uses repurposed and discarded cables and copper wire to convey a sense of the force whose original function was to harness electricity and transforms its potential, bending it to the will of man. 

Interested with the dichotomy of order and chaos, Chen is able to touch on the pursuit of and embrace of balance. She is inspired by the innovation and perseverance of mankind to create the technological phenomenon of the information age.

In her artist’s residency at Shoebox Projects, Chen will be working on her hexagram series entitled, I Ching In America, based on the hexagrams by I Ching. This three-dimensional installation will be composed of a “skeleton,” which will consist of a computer desk and a large crocheted piece of electronic fabric, made from electric wires and components.

Touching on the subject of continuity and un-ending change within the natural cycle of creation and destruction, Chen’s I Ching In America, Hexagram #32, refers to I Ching’s hexagrams. Each one represents the human condition and its consequences and acts as an oracle to provide insight and understanding.
