Courtesy of the artist. Jin-me Yoon, video still, Other Hauntings: A Geography Beloved (Dance), 2016, Single channel video.
More about Jin-me Yoon’s work: Through the use of gestures, activist Tera maps the geography of Gangjeong village, Jeju Island, South Korea onto her body; the beloved intimate landscape she struggles to preserve in the face ecological and social devastation caused by the recent construction of a Naval Base. A strange apparition, a seaweed-headed soldier of ambiguous gender, troubles our understanding of masculinity as well as the acceptance of military state-sanctioned violence against citizens, creatures small and large, the land, sea and all sustaining life ways.
DAAN DINNER:
After the DAAN panel, we will be gathering to go to Chinatown to visit the changing neighborhood including the new Pearl River Mart with their gallery space now showing work by artist Wiena Lin. We will talk with Pearl River Mart president Joanne Kwong. We will also visit other spaces and end for dinner at August Gatherings, 266 Canal Street (between Cortlandt Alley and Lafayette St). We will also discuss DAAN business at the start of the dinner. Dinner is Dutch treat. Please RSVP to achang@nyu.edu

Are you an artist/curator/scholar of the Asian diaspora in NYC? want to connect with others in the Diasporic Asian Arts Network (DAAN)? Meet up with DAAN-NY at Project:ARTspace on February 28th from 3pm-6pm.

Michelle Yoh will give us a tour of Alternative Dimension, her most recent curation featuring the work of Lisa Corinne Davis and Maureen Hoon.

Here’s info on the show:
Alternative Dimension
Lisa Corinne Davis, Maureen Hoon
Curated by Michelle Y. Loh

We construct our imagination and identity, to a great extent, based on recorded images and predefined concepts, received labels and fictions that allow us to make quotidian sense of the world. Questioning our received labels and fictions provides an opening where we can access our imagination and identity anew. Coming from different generations, raised in different hemispheres, Lisa Corinne Davis and Maureen Hoon creates works that are different on the surface, yet both artists bend representations of the physical world to a similar purpose. Drawing references from the urban environment, their works allude to materiality, space, image, and affect, and provide access to new ways of seeing and understanding.
