CURRENT SHOW: RARE DEVICE

Woodknot

BY KATIE GONG

SEPTEMBER 14 - NOVEMBER 6, 2017
Opening reception: Thursday, September 14, 2017 from 6-9pm

Rare Device is pleased to host our latest gallery show, Woodknot, featuring original wooden sculpture work by San Francisco artist Katie Gong. Gong's most recent work pushes the boundaries and characteristics of how wood is perceived. The show consists of varying sculptures shaped into playful knots and squiggles. Each sculpture speaks to calling attention to a unique material that is all around us and elevating how it is perceived.

Join Katie and the Rare Device staff on Thursday evening, September 14th at Rare Device Flagship on Divisadero from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. for the celebration. The show will be on view from Thursday, September 14th - Friday, November 6th.

DESIGN SPONGE

Woodknot FEATURE

BY GRACE BONNEY

SEPTEMBER 19,2017
 

"I spent at least a half hour in awe of Katie Gong‘s wooden sculptures that look like giant twisted pieces of twine or twist-tie, but are made entirely of beautiful wood. After steaming each piece of raffia for hours, Katie ties them into giant knots in a matter of seconds. The result is a piece that feels remarkably kinetic and full of life. I couldn’t stop staring at them and looking for more pictures online, so I thought I’d share some of my favorites here today. Click here to check them out on Instagram and here to check them out in Katie’s shop." –Grace
