Contemporary Kinetic Sculpture by U-Ram Choe to be Featured at Frist Center

NASHVILLE, TN.- The Frist Center for the Visual Arts will feature seven works by Korean kinetic artist U-Ram Choe in an exhibition opening to the public Feb. 19, 2010. “U-Ram Choe: New Urban Species” will be on view in the Gordon Contemporary Artists Project Gallery through May 16, 2010. U-Ram Choe’s kinetic sculptures are made of delicately curved sections of wrought metal, joined together in movable parts that are driven by motors to expand, contract, or otherwise suggest the autonomic motions—such as breathing or swimming—of such primitive life forms as plants and single-celled aquatic creatures. The intricate workmanship and graceful movements of these mechanical sculptures offer viewers an unparalleled visual delight.
