Hermit / Allog Dallog

April 19 – April 23, 2021

The Department of Art, Art History, and Design at Michigan State University is pleased to announce Hermit, and AllogDallog, the solo exhibition by Bachelor of Fine Arts degree candidate Yechan Sung.

Sung’s exhibition hermit features the people’s life after the pandemic of COVID-19, illustrating the humans as the marine animal – hermit crab – through Sculpture and Graphic design. The shape of the logo ‘m’ and sculptures reflect the shape of the shells, where people are staying in their safe place, protecting individuals during stressful and hazardous lives. The material symbolized an individual’s resting place, where people feel balmy, safe, and homely by utilizing the soft and warm fabrics.

The second exhibition Allog Dallog focuses on expressing the beauty of nature with Ceramics. As Sung grew up in the major cities, she had limits of interaction with the nature, where the attachment to the flowers and vases began. The pieces develop organically to symmetrical in both of the forms and on surfaces with glazes. Sung believes the vases are the closest nature’s object to humans and flowers are the window of the environment, which constructed the base of her concepts and inspirations.

Yechan Sung’s work will be on display in the Department of Art, Art History, and Design’s Gallery 114 in the Kresge Art Center beginning of April 19th through April 22nd.

The BFA solo exhibition is a major component of the BFA in Studio Art degree program. BFA candidates in the final year of study present their creative research to the public in a solo exhibition held in the Department of Art, Art History, and Design student galleries.
