Join us for the opening of Suspicious Growths, an immersive new exhibition of vibrant, organically-inspired installation works by Tai Hwa Goh, our 2017 Artist of the Year.
Tai Hwa Goh's works start from an interpretation of personal experiences, a desire to capture the fine details and rhythm that make up one's accumulated memories, and the natural flow of energy. Goh's pieces use traditional printing methods on thin Korean Hanji paper, which is piled, folded, and bound by hand to create forms that evoke elements of nature such as stems, cells, and seeds, and organs of the human body. Together these become a living organism that appears to proliferate and divide as viewers experience a totally transformed art space, before being reborn into an installation with architectural elements. This reflects Goh's process of finding her identity through an acute realization and transformation of one's total life, memories, and ego. Read Goh's full profile on the KCC website here.
The Artist of the Year recognition bestowed on Tai Hwa Goh for Suspicious Growths was launched this year to spotlight one outstanding artist who applied to the center's annual Open Call for Artists. Now in its second year, the open call program is a competitive selection process that forms the following year's exhibition season at the Korean Cultural Center.
