Join the artist MiKyoung Lee as she leads an art-making workshop at Art on Hulfish, in conjunction with her solo exhibition Threading Memories / MiKyoung Lee on view at Art@Bainbridge. Experiment with building abstract and organic forms with pipe cleaners, twist ties, and other found recycled materials. By using familiar and everyday objects, participants will experience how to create art that is both personally expressive and materially linked to our wider consumer, mass-produced world.
By twisting and knotting, a method akin to weaving, Lee uses common, mass-produced products such as pipe cleaners, zip ties, and twist ties to create dynamic, lush large-scale sculptures as well as intimate two-dimensional, wall-mounted works. The meditative nature of these techniques allows Lee to reflect on and catalogue her memories as she creates; open cavities in many of her works provide metaphorical spaces in which viewers can place their own memories for private contemplation and reflection.
