Description


Shih Chieh Huang transforms the Feldman Gallery booth into a hallucinatory space of light, sound, and electronic machinery, evoking the bioluminescence of the near total darkness of the ocean’s Disphotic Zone – also called the Twilight Zone. The artist’s art and thinking is shaped by childhood memories of discovering strange objects in the local night market, as well as a fellowship at the Smithsonian Institution where he studied bioluminescent organisms. Born in Taiwan and based in New York, Shih Chieh Huang combines wholly synthetic materials from everyday objects with complicated technology to dissect and disassemble the detritus of contemporary civilizations, reconstructing them into surreal experiences. The mundane is made magical.
