Eunjung Hwang exhibits work based on animism in the Narthex Gallery at Saint Peter's Church June 9 - July 20, 2014. Free and open to the public daily.
This installation is presented by Midtown Arts Common in cooperation with Saint Peter's Church.
About the workEunjung Hwang is a New York - based artist who holds an MFA in Computer Arts from the School of Visual Arts, New York, an BFA in Painting from Ewha Women’s University, Seoul, Korea and a BA in English Literature from Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea.
Hwang's projects start with a variety of character, born out of animism and rooted in dreams and subconscious images. The characters unfold in their own fantastic reality, following an interwoven dream logic through which their different narratives are connected, looping through imaginary cycles of infancy, dream, death and the beyond.
Curious Characters is made possible in part with public funds from Manhattan Community Arts Fund, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
