Transition in Unknown Territory; Panic Architecture

With the generous support of the Qatar Foundation, The Painting and Printmaking Department is proud to showcase the VCUQatar Fellowship and the work of this year fellow: Leekyung Kang.

Leekyung Kang has navigated the structural framework and “bone/skeleton” of infrastructure in urban landscapes since 2014. By exploring spatial surfaces, such as construction sites and scaffolding structures, Kang leverages architectural imagery with mixed media. She has recently been seeking to uncover the unseen space, which is present, but never fully revealed.

Kang would like to capture this unfinished state and challenge the conventional understanding of space, which tends to focus on its physical condition, history, and transformation.

Opening hours: Everyday from 9am to 6pm.
