Hyunjung Rhee is a Korean artist based in New York City, where she graduated with an MFA from Pratt Institute. Hav- ing taught herself coding, her works seamlessly incorporate a more traditional art practice with technology. She examines the failures in the communication system and the transmis- sion space through multimedia installations. It is from her own experience with miscommunication and linguistic collision that Rhee conceptualizes in her mechanized sculptures.
The exhibition will include two of her major installations, En- tagled Description and Corpora as well as some of her draw- ings. The show will focus on the Entangled Description piece, a motorized artwork programed to randomly rotate and make the text printed on the bands interact each other. The result is a loss of meaning and multiple smudged bands that she gathers and assembles to create Corpora, a two-dimensional work exploring this conceptualized linguistic collision.
Carrie Able Gallery opened in September 2016 in Williams- burg, Brooklyn. The gallery showcases the work of the re- nowned artist, Able, amongst the most exciting emerging visual artists. The artists showcased are discovered via an open submission policy and are evaluated by Lead Curator, Damien Anger, based solely on the art itself without consid- eration of CV or biographical information. While a commercial gallery, Carrie Able Gallery is mission based. The chalk board front door of the space showcases an ongoing community ephemeral art project. The gallery also hosts free monthly art classes for 8-12 year olds as well as a free monthly event, Living Arts Night, where poets and musicians are welcome to share their work. Carrie Able Gallery is a proud partner of the National Parks Arts Foundation. Private gallery tours are available upon request. Translation services are available in French, Italian and Mandarin.
