Julian Hou and Christian Kliegel share a background in critical art practice and are currently pursuing their Masters in Architecture at UBC. For the final installment of the workaday series at the Helen Pitt Gallery, Hou & Kliegel will engage in a process-oriented installation that takes the redesign of the exhibition space as its starting point. Discursive sculptures and ephemeral installations will emerge from their material alterations to the gallery throughout the duration of this three-week performative process.
Julian Hou is a graduate student of architecture at the University of British Columbia. His current research investigates scene composition and narrative and its implications for domestic architecture.
Christian Kliegel’s installation based work is concerned with contextualizing materials and spaces within a given or chosen framework. He has exhibited locally and internationally since receiving his BFA from Emily Carr in 2004. Christian is a current graduate student of architecture at the University of British Columbia.
