Sculptural installations challenge gallery spaces

Shaun HurShaun HurKorean-born and London-based Shaun Hur makes installation works to question the confines of gallery spaces.

Hur challenges the passive roles in which viewers traditionally see sculptures within the context of a gallery, implicating the space as an active element in the artwork itself.

The inspiration behind this work comes from closed shops and construction sites combined with evoking the memories of the adventures and discoveries made during childhood.  

Hur creates brilliantly stalling work that questions what we know even as it sits in front of our very eyes.

His works include a twisted column, a hole in the wall or a broken pillar, even a basketball in the centre of a pillar and many more intelligent installations.

See more of his work here, and tell us if you would feel safe in one of these galleries.

    I am not sure I want to see them live but I couldn’t stop staring at the images! So aesthetic.
