Official description

H Gallery is presenting an installation by a Japanese artist who creates elaborate structures and new spatial experiences with light as his central medium.

In “Quark”, Bangkok-based Eiji Sumi employs particles that appear like reflective dust and are typically used in motion graphics. The installation consists of a site-specific structure in which these particles urgently swirl and most immediately compel a great sense of wonder and fascination.

They further compel an array of associations with infinitude and the cosmos.

However, the artist probes relationships between art and science.

The installation is technically accomplished, resulting from a variety of experiments to achieve the tornado-like movement of the reflective
powder and effectively manipulating the environment of the gallery’s space.

The title of this installation refers to subatomic particles, which are the smallest known units of matter. The basis of all in the world, they never occur alone and interact by means of force.

The name, quark, was taken by a physicist from James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake, where a play on the name of the character King Mark provided inspiration.

A further literary influence can be noted in the fact that the six types of known quarks are called “flavours” and one type is known as “charms”. These auras of scientific and literary interest shape our experience of “Quark”, the exhibition.

‘Quark’ will be on display at H Gallery from Feb 6 until March 2.
