EXHIBITION OPENING: Saturday, February 10, 5-8pm
Exhibition on View: February 10 - March 11, 2018
Rachel Lee Zheng
Inspired by the Light and Space movement, spearheaded by James Turrell and Robert Irwin in the late 1960s, Rachel Zheng creates large-scale installations, re-configuring a space with hundreds of strings and light. With these installations she builds meditative, immersive environments that lure the viewer into a place of reflection. Zheng highlights a disorienting relationship between the physicality of form and the immateriality of light and space. Her installation at FiveMyles will change the intimate Plus/Space into a experiential zone.
