Art in focus: ‘Foon Sham’ turns a sculptor’s waste material into art at Project 4

Project 4 Gallery’s current exhibition, a visually striking installation by sculptor Foon Sham, does more than spotlight the Chinese-born artist’s recent art. It’s also a celebration of work he made years ago.

The show is no retrospective, but it does feature large piles of sawdust created — and collected — by the artist over 25 years of art-making. There’s even an interactive component, where visitors are invited to contribute their own handfuls of sawdust to Sham’s sprawling, landscape-like installation.

Read my review, and check out a selection of images from the show in the gallery at the top of this post.
