SOH CHO 2               U SEE ME , I SEE U

how many layers are there to an identity? how many of those do you wish to conceal or reveal? who is The Self you wish to be perceived? what tangible pieces do you choose to adorn your body with to project to the world and which of these pieces, if not all, are an extension of your body– a window into your aesthetic, beliefs, and ambitions?

with chosen attendees as models, SOH CHO will lead you through figure drawing exercises focusing on the human form and curated ornamentation. all the while, we will observe how much emotion we can detect through body language as we perceive the manifestations of personal style.

SOH CHO 3              REMEMORY             thursday february 23        8:00 p

 
 

in a dream, we are immersed in our subconscious’ most terrorizing fears and gloriously breathtaking fantasies. while some undefinable dreams and hazy faces drift away with time, others remain engrained and linger on for years.

using (imagery)(sound)(conversation) as tools to provoke the limbo between conscious and subconscious states, R E M E M O R Y  will (channel)(focus on)(materialize) your unique subconscious experiences by pushing you to (unearth)(dissect)(relive) your most memorable dreams– using them as a foundation to create (physical representations)(artworks)(manifestations) of your significant solitary realities.

INSPIRATION              RENE MAGRITTE 1898-1967     TONI MORRISON 1931-

"I was talking about time. It's so hard for me to believe in it. Some things go. Pass on. Some things just stay. I used to think it was my rememory. You know. Some things you forget. Other things you never do. But it's not. Places, places are still there. If a house burns down, it's gone, but the place—the picture of it—stays, and not just in my rememory, but out there, in the world. What I remember is a picture floating around out there outside my head. I mean, even if I don't think it, even if I die, the picture of what I did, or knew, or saw is still out there. Right in the place where it happened."    BELOVED 1987
