JAG projects present Rob Rhee: Occupations of Uninhabited Space, steel wire forms are improvised in the studio and then sent to farms across the country where they are installed in gourd fields, setting in motion a year-long process of chance. As the gourds grow and push through the metal restraints they bubble past their bound restraints. When ripe and ready for picking they emerge as mutated results of outward natural growth and unnatural cold restraint
Their collective title, Occupations of Uninhabited Space, is borrowed from a fictional collection of sculptures described in the novel The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin. Rhee’s sculptures by the same name manifest the occupation, a call and response between the gourd’s phenotype and Rhee’s reinterpretation of it via the steel sculpture.
