6 x 6 Final Week: August 14-20 Golden Structure by Sue Huang
6 x 6 Project this week: Sue Huang's Golden Structure
Golden Structure explores the creation and evolution of forts within the space of A.P.E. The artist, Sue Huang will use the textile of gold lamé to build the forts and rooms and invites the community to join her in this exploration as she reconstructs the tented structures of her childhood. The textile used to build the structure has been selected for its sheen and gilded surface, which evoke the precious, dreamlike experience of the reconstruction of memory as well as the artist’s own memories of gold interior decor from her childhood in the Middle East.
