Electrical wire, clamp, wire nut
Hyungsub Shin is an interdisciplinary artist who works in outdoor installations, painting, and indoor sculptures. His works are repetitious in pattern and material, often creating these interlocking, hive-like structures of form almost reminiscent of the human and animal neurological systems. He works in multiples and uses modern materials of plastic, wood, concrete, paper, and for Electree: actual electrical wire with colorful clamps and wire nuts. This system of linked wires and modules sprawl across a sanctioned wooded area, a small landscape of man-made nature among the serene backdrop of the back woods (complete with running stream) at Omi.
Hyungsub Shin received his BFA at Hong-Ik University in Seoul, South Korea in 1996, and subsequently his MFA from SVA in NYC in 2000. He has been awarded a multitude of honors, residencies and awards throughout the years, and has exhibited internationally between the U.S., South Korea, and China since the late 1990s.
