Vernacular: dreamlike sculptures of symbiotic animals fused with buildings by Song Kang

In her series titled Vernacular, Portland-based artist and illustrator Song Kang creates fascinating sculptures of animals merged with human landscapes in a surreal symbiotic relationship. Her pieces are made mainly of wood, plaster, papier-mâché, fiber, recyclable plastics, and paper goods.

The term ‘vernacular’ tends to correlate with all things commonplace; however, in the architectural sense, the ‘vernacular’ exemplifies human’s abilities to adapt to their surroundings and build with their environments. This series explores the symbiotic relationship between the vernacular home and the environmental context in which it exists.
