PREMOLT: Heesoo Kwon
Opening Reception: July 11th 5-7 PM
The show will run through August 11th
Premolt is the first stage of 탈피를 위한 의식 [A Ritual for Metamorphosis], a series of rituals that resembles a gut (굿), the rites performed by Korean shamans that involves giving offerings and sacrifices to gods, spirits, and ancestors. It is an attempt to reframe her traumatic personal experiences and create an alternate reality where the familial avatars can live outside of the tendrils of patriarchy and domesticity. Through this project, Kwon is able to abstract conceptions of time, boundaries of appropriate love, sacrifice, trauma, violence, and familial relations.
