Sun K. Kwak
Located in the foyer and sky lobby in the glass elevator
Korean artist Sun K. Kwak lives and works in New York and has exhibited and been reviewed across the world. Her custom piece for The James New York was inspired by the space within which it was created: The Glass Elevator. As the elevator moves up and down the black image on the white wall will start to move together and appear gradually floor-by-floor. The finished piece will be full of life and vibrancy, and the unusual exhibition space allows viewers a unique way to appreciate a work of art. As a result, she says, “the usual perception of the space “Elevator” is now changed through viewers’ time and experience in the new pictorial reality.” Black masking tape is Sun’s signature medium, with which she has been creating pieces for fifteen years.
