Stand in the place where you live 
Now face north 
Think about direction 
Wonder why you haven't before 

Now stand in the place where you work
Now face west
Think about the place where you live
Wonder why you haven't before

If you are confused, check with the sun
Carry a compass to help you along
Your feet are going to be on the ground
Your head is there to move you around

- Stand, R.E.M. 1988

Won Eh is pleased to present Stand, a solo exhibition by Thomas Spoerndle. The exhibition will feature one site-specific wall drawing and one “corner-specific” painting. With each artwork, Spoerndle explores his characteristic visual language in a systematic yet distinct way to create an experience between the pictorial and the material space in which to provide the viewer an opportunity to engage in his fundamental subject – “the act of looking.” Overall in this particular exhibition, this “act” also extends to include the architecture of the overall space. Thus, the viewer stands within the artwork to become another individual element in relation to the whole.
