Sculptor and installation artist Kaili Chun negotiates ideas of containment and exposure, agency and restraint. Process and materials transform physical spaces into unique environments commenting on contemporary issues in her work. She often constructs narratives through symbols and objects that address the impact of historical events on the present day. Organic elements are sometimes included in her pieces, and the changes they undergo during the course of an exhibition metaphorically reference the nature of culture as an evolutionary process. Chun’s diverse training includes receiving her Bachelor’s in Architecture from Princeton University, during which time she also studied with renown ceramicist Toshiko Takaezu; a Master of Fine Art degree from the University of Hawaii at Mānoa; and an apprenticeship with master canoe builder and woodworker Wright Elemakule Bowman, Sr.
