Extended Self


During Exhibition | March 21st, 2020- May 3rd, 2020

My Extended Self Artist Dinner|April 19th, April 26th

"If your house was on fire, what would you take with you?" Foster Huntington, who was working in the fashion industry in New York at the time, asked this question through his Tumblr in 2012, which triggered a worldwide discussion and resulted in a best-selling book "The Burning House". : What Would You Take?" What is the meaning of the object itself? What meaning is given to the object by the owner? Answers from all over the place from Huntington lead to a conclusion: an object is an extension of its owner.

 

Regardless of whether an object has a practical function or not, it must carry the owner's thoughts, emotions, and memories to some extent. This exhibition will showcase the creations of seven artists and the objects of fifteen collectors, combining home space, ready-made objects in daily life, and works of art, touching the intimate stories between people and objects, and exploring the connection between the two.
