Opening explores the movements of people looking at artwork at gallery openings through a two-channel moving image of hand-drawn figures projected on two large, street-facing windows. Based on footage captured at Chelsea gallery openings, Kakyoung Lee isolates and recreates the movements of figures on yellow legal pad pages. Every night, from sunset to dawn, the empty store front windows of 1351 Amsterdam will be transformed--with the projected silhouettes of figures moving, chatting, and wandering around the space--into the busiest of "opening night" scenes.
