M ㄅ V ㄍ M ㄍ ㄇ ㄒ III: Bad Buddha: Cathy Hsiao Exhibition
Date: April 12th – May 24th 2019
Reception: Friday, April 26, 5-7 PM
Through rhythm and ritual Cathy Hsiao weaves together narratives that are personally intimate and art historically evocative. These narratives are mostly accurate, somewhat fictitious, always woven together in a syncopation of languages. Her practice is deeply rooted in a hybrid inquiry between material making and conceptual thinking. Hsiao constructs parallels between her affective mental landscape and the larger natural and built environments. Much of her techniques re-use distinct craft practices from Asian textiles such as weaving and natural dyeing iterated into a vocabulary influenced by the history of Western abstraction.
