HARRISBURG, Pa. – “Perceiving Emptiness” by internationally known artist Jayoung Yoon will be displayed in the Rose Lehrman Art Gallery at HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, from Feb. 20-March 17, 2023.
The public is invited to a free lecture by the artist on March 2 at 6 p.m. in room 214 of Whitaker Hall on HACC’s Harrisburg Campus. A reception in the Rose Lehrman Art Gallery will follow the lecture.
Yoon, a New York-based artist born in South Korea, draws upon the mind-matter phenomenon, exploring memory, perception and bodily sensations. The primary medium in her work is human hair, a material that is intimately corporeal, tactile and focuses the viewer’s attention on the body. Each strand of her own hair is hand knotted or woven into forms then placed within layers of acrylic medium and beeswax to create intricate sculptures.
Her work has been exhibited in numerous museums and galleries, including The Bronx Museum of the Arts in Bronx, New York; San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles in San Jose, California; Delaware Center for Contemporary Art in Wilmington, Delaware; and Coreana Museum of Art and Seoul Olympic Museum of Art, both in Seoul, Korea.
The gallery received state arts funding support through a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and from the National Endowment for the Arts.
