Thousand Kisses, In My Living Room
One day performance piece by Gyun Hur
Garments are obsessively cut in hands with scissors for hours. An array of green house plants await for kisses and whispers. It is the artist’s attempt to visualize the hours of rituals in remembering the past and the present, beckoning herself in reconciliation through a transformative act in making. Artist Gyun Hur’s performance will take place throughout the entire day, inviting visitors to experience the progression of the performance at Get This! Gallery.
