“Art installation’ or “installation art” has become almost a generic term for contemporary art practice today. However the notion of space in installations remains essential in museum and gallery exhibition context. This course aims to introduce various concepts and practices of installation art through studio practices and critical reviews. The course will train students’ sense of volume, scale and space, critical ability to analysze physical artworks and practical skills to realize art installations. The workshop will explore form, structure, site and body for installations. Materials will be studied for their physical characteristics, inherent connotation and metaphorical potential, and relationships with the physical, cultural and historical environment. Students will learn how to design and produce innovative space with physical objects and media works.
