POUR CELAIN by gregorysung for CRISTINA GRAJALES GALLERIES new york

POUR CELAIN by gregorysung for CRISTINA GRAJALES GALLERIES, new york, at london's MOET HENNESSY pavilion of art and design in berkley square in london, embodies beauty and the dilemma of duality raising issues of art and design form and function. the notion of materials inappropriate for the application are realized and a seemingly fragile object in the shape of a functional object is created. 

when conversation ensues, “should i even sit” as the form suggests “or should i observe as the material demands?” a motherly understanding takes place similar to a watching children at a museum who immediately understand ‘no’ but children know: ‘of course, let us see.” and they do sit and therefore understand fully POUR CELAIN

seats produced by korea ceramic masters and legs produced by the artisans of italy join together with cross joints of two worlds securing symbolically as materials & function ultimately create beauty, purpose, and balance.

history

“adaptation is not death but a necessity of evolving”

experiencing a design by gregorysung, creates an evolution through your interaction with his functional objects, spaces & sculptural artifacts. deeply rooted in the cultural underpinnings of our global society they communicate a clear hope for a future true to both human nature & our growing sophistication.

born into a family of engineers, artists, & university professors on 3 continents, gregorysung sculpted, designed & experimented in design studios, machine shops & corporate research labs worldwide leading to university lecturing on design innovation, green & sustainable design, new product development, spatial concepts, & aesthetics at the enpc/ecole nationale des ponts et chaussees phd/mba engineering program; parsons paris school of design; lucerne school of art & design; sook myung university, seoul; school of the art Institute of chicago; & rca london all while working with louis vuitton, magis, the xerox parc labs, pfizer, fujitsu, samsung, sunstar, dietiker, mit, mizar, the center for advanced technology washington, roche bobois & many others.

20 years earlier gregorysung’s “innovations” were called “troublemaking” & “green design” work “biodegradable.” marketing changes but not gregorysung’s attitude – the future isn’t a mouse click away, it’s a journey, an investigation, & a synthesis to be launched.

gregorysung shares his instigation & creative curiosity today as the very first day, here to explore, synthesize, design & engineer for the future we are creating.
