About this event
 

The exhibition The Weight of the Head by former WIELS resident G. Küng (1982, New York) includes a watercolour of a baby reproduced at a large scale, cyanotypes and aluminum foil sculptures.

The works continue my exploration into the relationship between intimacy and distance. While working, I stayed centered on the phrase “sensitivity is enough.” “Sensitive” also encapsulates “woke” and “mindful.” The head is full of worries and longing, but there are alternate modes also. On one level, this work is about accessing these modes intellectually, the pitfalls and redeeming qualities of doing so.
