At Eyedrum Downtown
115 MLK Jr Dr SW
Performance by Tiger Moon at 9pm.
Eyedrum Art and Music Gallery is pleased to present ME LOVE YOU LONG TIME, a show by Asian American women featuring a dual exhibition and a performance piece by Tiger Moon.
ME LOVE YOU LONG TIME plays on notions of Eastern mystique to consider both the objectification and romanticization of ideologies in contemporary consumer culture. The exhibition will include works on paper from an ongoing series by Yoon Kyoung Nam and new works on canvas by Yoonhwa Jang. Chanel Kim and Zopi Kristjanson will perform as emcee duo Tiger Moon at the opening and closing receptions. Their performance will include an installation of hanging scrolls and a large scale mobile.
In the exhibition, Yoon Kyoung Nam and Yoonhwa Jang’s works are deeply rooted in their Asian American experience. Nam’s vibrant mixed media drawings share the playfulness of South Korean artist Ki-Chang Kim, yet are often accompanied by moody phrases that express unease, homesickness and nostalgia. Jang’s works on canvas convey notions of expectation and identity. Her work borrows iconic symbols from Asian tradition and Western culture and uses these to disguise, protect and obscure the origins of the characters in her narratives.
Borrowing inspiration from the Wu-Tang Clan, Tiger Moon explores the tropes of the gangster and samurai as well as their own Asian and feminine identity. Their act will include an emcee set, with beats produced by Chris Devoe, performed around an installation of ‘hieroglyphed’ scrolls and a large scale mobile. Within their scrolls and rap lyrics, Kim and Kristjanson wrestle with the ideals of discipline and spirituality versus pleasure and aggression through characters found in Greek and Egyptian iconography. The mobile illustrates Tiger Moon’s ‘Luna-verse’ and uses materials that reflects both waste and industriousness.
