Yoonhee Choi & Roya Motamedi

At Blackfish Gallery

Thu, May 04 to Sun, May 28

show

Deformed plastic caps and straight pins, a 12 x 30 foot gallery wall, the barest of graphite lines, light. These are the components of Yoonhee Choi’s latest installation, an exploration of the easily neglected and immediately abandoned detritus of a consumer society.

In Sift, Choi focuses on the colorful caps of children’s magic markers: bright and cheerful, associated with creativity, yet landfill nonetheless—discarded plastic that can take up to 1,000 years to decompose.

On a formal level, Roya Motamedi’s collages of fabric and birch on paper are concerned with pattern, repetition, and interconnectivity. From a content perspective, interconnectivity to family through time is paramount.

Motamedi’s mixed heritage—half Japanese, half Afghan—and her experiences of living in and visiting both countries infuse her work.
