Usagi NY

Growth: Dan Lam, Jaz Harold, Yunjung Kang

 163 Plymouth Street

 

usagi_newyork is pleased to present Growth, a three-person exhibition inspired by twentieth century philosopher Henry Bergson’s concept of creative evolution. In an inverse of Bergson’s teleological notion of evolution, Growth investigates the ways repetition, rhythm, and unpredictability of material drive artistic creativity. The title of the exhibition is a nod to ambivalence about material production in the age marked by unprecedented environmental pressures.

Exhibiting artists are Dan Lam, Jaz Harold, and Yunjung Kang  ー three artists whose work is informed by organic forms and physicality of the human body. Initially seemingly non-threatening and inviting to touch, their work explores the themes of dualities of attraction/repulsion, nature/artifice, grotesque, perception of beauty, and sexuality.
