Colorbound, 2/3/17 - 2/25/17
Bunker Projects is pleased to present Colorbound, a solo exhibition by Zhiwan Cheung. In exploring the superficial application of language onto an ethnic neighborhood, an idealized skin color, and a series of decontextualized words, Colorbound seeked out the complexities and contradictions of naming through sculpture and video.
Zhiwan Cheung (b. Long Beach, CA) received his BFA from Cornell University and his MFA from Carnegie Mellon University. Zhiwan probes the intersection of national identity and the personal psyche, focusing on how and where they join and diverge. Through sculpture, film, and performance, this journey is guided by an allusive visual language, with references spanning from pop culture to art history that guide audiences into finding their own rites of passage.
