TURNING PINK W/ LEONG LEONG May 24 - June 6th

TURNING PINK W/ LEONG LEONG

May 24th to June 6th will exhibit work by Leong-Leong Architects. The opening reception will be Thursday, 5/27 from 7:30-9:30 pm. Working closely with materiality and site specificity, the architects intend to subvert the form of pink foam, turning the gallery space into a cleverly constructed water cooler. From the street, this installation appears as a glowing, pink, enigmatic box, its contents and purpose unknown. Once inside the box, all reference to the boundaries of the gallery are obscured, leaving only a warm glow around a grotto of cool beer and hot dumplings. Conceived of as a Box-within-a-Box, the installation is composed of the commonly used hard-foam insulation to create an experience that embraces the tight confines of the gallery space while utilizing the thermal properties of the foam thus creating a “cooling” room. Additionally, Okamoto Studio has donated an ice sculpture for the opening party. The wit and humor combined with the considered use of basic materials make this a playful and intelligent collaboration.

Leong-Leong is an architecture firm based in New York City whose work includes building the highly publicized Phillip Lim stores in Asia, also renovating those in NYC and LA, and collaborating with Ace Hotel for the Opening Ceremony/Ace Hotel pop up store.
