The ‘Box Mobile Gallery’ is a gallery responsive to various exhibition intentions and art media. The gallery consists of 12 panels soft-hinged side by side. Each of these panels features an art work fixed to its inside. The flexibility of the soft hinge system allows the spatial reconfiguration of the gallery, transforming one space to another according to site conditions, exhibition intention, and art media; from independent cells for an individual exhibition, to a common exhibition space for a group exhibition, often times with an introductory area or a court yard, and to a special exhibition space for various art media.
When the Box Mobile Gallery met the mobility art projects such as ‘Mobility and Yi sang’s house drawings’, as part of Yi Sang’s house architectural program, the Box Mobile Gallery experimented with the idea that the territory of Yi Sang’s house can be extended to its Tong-in Dong neighborhood, exhibiting a series of drawings of Yi Sang’s house within.
Starting from 1st day installation on the street at Yi Sang’s house, the Box Mobile Gallery lodged several days at alley of local housing blocks, attracted street passengers at previously outdoor parking lot under PSPD Building near Yi Sang’s house. With this Installation, people could encounter unexpected daily events in a city to create a delightful urban experience as an urban transformer.
