Fantastic Animation: The Imaginative World of Yeon
Date: January 28 – February 28
Location: Illges Gallery
Reception: January 30, 5:30 – 7 pm
Fantastic Animation: The Imaginative World of Yeon Jin Kim will feature works by Yeon Jin Kim the 2014 Long Term Visiting Artist and Scholar to the Department of Art. Kim's video works assume a breakdown of the natural order but also show wildly proliferating new growth from unexpected sources. Charged atmospheres and hallucinogenic landscapes are offset by the enduring charm, inventiveness and resiliency of nature. However fantastical, Kim's work springs from her fascination with the complexities of human nature and always refers back to human experience, much as fables do. Hitchcock, Terry Gilliam, Kafka and Lewis Carol are ongoing influences. Through imagination and wonderment, Kim's world creates unexpected new order and relationships.

Foreign & Domestic illuminates how photographers look at what's new (foreign) when it's in the familiar day-to-day (domestic) of their surroundings. Curator, Michael David Murphy selectedphotographers, Hannah Pierce Carlson and Mark Powell to examine how artist's assimilate in an unfamiliar territory. Hannah was raised in Texas, and currently lives in Asia (China, Taiwan & Thailand in just the last couple of years). Mark was raised in Detroit, and lives with his family in Mexico City. Both artists investigate their new countries with an intensity and curiosity that's very different from the view(s) created by travelers or tourists.
