poster for Ahn Jun and Kazue Taguchi Exhibition

This event has ended.

Ahn Jun views her photographs as “performance without audience.” In her current series, “Self Portrait,” Jun revisits places with which she feels a deep nostalgic connection and acts out her adolescent suicidal fantasies by situating herself in precarious, life-threatening situations. By photographing herself in these ultra vulnerable positions she conveys the fragility and insanity of life and ultimately the humanity.

Kazue Taguchi's work explores the ethereal, intangible effects of light and reflection. Inspired by a trip to Europe and the stained glass windows she discovered in the churches she toured as a teenager, her focus is on reflective material and light. “Silver Silence,” a recent large scale installation, will be featured in this exhibition. The work is made of mylar spirals which are suspended from the ceiling. The fascinating, ever-changing reflections on the walls from these swinging silver objects creates a relaxing and sublime space.
