Sunroom Project Space 2019 | July 21–September 2

Kate Bae’s immersive installation in the Sunroom consists of flowers created from layers of acrylic paint. They drape from the ceiling into a wishing well that encourages visitors to reflect, toss coins or float paper origami boats. The landscape evokes the ecosystem of Mount Halla on South Korea’s Jeju Island, a holy symbol of the unification of South Korea and North Korea. The project evolves from Bae’s Korean roots, connecting history, border issues, peace and hope with her personal experience.
