“My work challenges the boundaries between sculpture, installation, and drawing.”

Park’s work reconfigures and redefines aspects of different mediums to construct pieces which fall in between them. Her sculptures are drawings, her drawings are sculptures, and her installations are a combination of both. Her materials are chosen for their liminal quality, manipulated to explore what lies between inside and outside, sculpture and drawing, vision and perception, and objects and their shadows. Her recent work incorporates light as an essential material, through which elements such as projection, reflection, and shadows travel.

Over the last fifteen years, my work has moved toward casting light as a sculptural material. I reconfigure boundary materials—fencing, plastic, glass,sheetrock—to expand and explore a variety of liminal spaces between inside and outside, sculpture and drawing, vision and perception, objects and their shadows.

Light is usually treated as a liminal being: something that mediates our visual awareness of the world, but not something that we see in and of itself. In my work, light is not just a means by which the form is seen, but part of what constitutes the work of art. Light is a sculptural material, not because without it one cannot see the forms, but because without it there is no projection, reflection, translucency, or shadow, so the drawing/ sculpture is not complete.
