Tae-A (胎我 : 태아) 
 I come into being :
 The story of you and I counting stars
Presented by Chaewon Kim
September 30 to October 20, 2019
Opening Reception on Thursday, October 3, 2019,
7 p.m. - 9 p.m. 
 

The body of work in this exhibition comes from a fundamental question about a human being “Who am I”. Since my thesis research, I was interested in theories ofsubjectless subjectivity, selflessness and pure immanence in philosophy. In addition, I found myself contemplating themes of evacuation and let-it-go in religion. My practice, essentially, tries to express the way to lose myself in order to find ‘Pure I’ and starts at the very beginning where everything was undefined in any language. I believe that everything around us in this world has a pure moment before we made a name on it or define it. The subject began with an image of the fetus in the mother, but the meaning of ‘Tae-A’ is more close to the form of exist oneself rather than the fetus. As the work progresses the shape of ‘I’ became more abstract form. Through the ambiguity of the form, viewers are invited to entrench themselves in the work and are provided with a moment to meet their ‘Pure I’ in any shapes. For more information click here.

September 30 to October 20, 2019
 
Haley Tenn is a high school student. She is part of the High Performer Program for Elite Athletes and is enrolled in the Specialist High Skills Major for Arts and Culture.
 
Haley has been drawing ever since she can remember.
 
Haley says: “Art has always been a part of my life, and until last year I’d always thought that art had to be perfect, so I’d only draw things that I knew I’d be good at. Ever since I’ve pushed myself to try new things, I’ve found myself being more creative and even more proud of myself when I make new, unique things that I never thought I’d be able to create. I can’t imagine what my life would be like if I wasn’t drawing every day.”
