Cahoon Museum Announces Major Art Installation

COTUIT – The Cahoon Museum of American Art announced the completion of its first major art installation, “Boundary Conditions,” by contemporary mid-career artist Soo Sunny Park.

Park is known for creating monumental art installations that transform their environments into realms of moving light, reflection, and shadow.

In “Boundary Conditions,” she weaves together a metal grid with iridescent Plexiglas that transmits, reflects, and refracts daylight to create an otherworldly installation.

Changing light conditions reveal different facets of the sculpture, so that during different times of day it shifts from translucent and clear to colorful prismatic.

The monumental artwork encompasses the museum’s entire first floor gallery space, which was completely whitewashed to create a neutral surface that allows Park’s collection to create a fully immersive experience.

The artwork is responsive to both natural light from the gallery’s clerestory windows and installed light sources, which reflect through the artwork onto the ceiling, floor, and walls.

In addition, Park painted on the walls and floor, tracing areas where shadows fall, creating a dynamic overlap.

Two talks by Museum Director Sarah Johnson accompany the exhibition.

The talks are free with museum admission and free for members.

The first talk will take place Friday, November 22nd at 2 p.m. and the other will take place Friday, December 6 at 11 a.m.

Registration for the tours is requested by phone at 508 428 7581 or through the Museums website

The exhibit will remain on view through Sunday, December 22nd.
