SU WEICHU: ECHO'S BONES
The Martha and Robert Fogelman Galleries of Contemporary Art / 3175 Central Ave., Art & Communication Bldg. Rooms 230 & 240 August 28, 2017 - September 15, 2017
This exhibition features the work of University of Memphis alumna Su WeiChu (BFA, 2016) and explores the impermanence and mortality of ecological systems. The installation, comprised of textile-based objects, blurs the boundaries of sculpture and painting. Taken together, they consider the metamorphosis of the spirit of nature often found in mythology and folklore—combining elements of obscure, fragmented geological formations with anthropomorphic biological systems.
Faculty in the Department of Art at The University of Memphis selected Su from the Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 graduating Bachelor of Fine Arts classes for this prestigious solo exhibition. An annual tradition, this exhibition provides an outstanding graduate with the opportunity to present a body of work as well as develop and execute an exhibition concept with Fogelman Galleries staff.
