Jae Hi Ahn
Green Space is a solo show by NYC-based artist Jae Hi Ahn. Jae Hi proposes Green Space as an attractive alternative to nature in New York City, where the pandemic has severely limited public life and access to green space more than ever. To create Green Space, she repurposes daily materials such as produce bags and plastic cups by cutting, wiring, pinning, and assembling them. Influenced by her memories from the past, Jae Hi creates surrealistic and fantastic space, which will also be used as references to build her present and future experiences.
