About the Artists
Anne Krinsky is a London-based artist, born in the US. She works with paint, print, photography, and video, and research underpins her practice. Fascinated by the ephemeral nature of the physical world, Anne investigates overlooked structures in the natural and lived environments. She trained as a printmaker, and layering – of ideas, images, and media – lies at the heart of her process. Since 2018, Anne has been working on an international project about vulnerable wetlands and climate change. While at 18th Street, she is documenting the Los Angeles River Corridor and coastal wetlands near LA. She has been awarded an Arts Council England Grant to fund her research. Anne will be exhibiting layered works-in-progress that combines paint, print, and photographic imagery collected in wetlands.
Jessi Ali Lin is an artist working with and through sculpture, video, performance, and embodiment. Her work exploits the notion of positionality both in terms of physical position and the multivalence of identity as central to her process. Drawing from feminist history, Minimalism, and performance art, Lin examines the relationship between the performance of the self, its fragmented nature, and its location within the social and built environment. She will be sharing recent video projects made at an industrial recycling center in Philadelphia and a sculptural/scent project currently under-development at 18th Street.
Park Kyung Ryul is an artist based in Seoul whose practice includes painting, drawing, ceramic, and installation. Her recent work, The Evenness Series, expands the flat space of painting into the physical world, challenging narrative-biased paintings by expanding time and space through the actions of the artist and viewers. Park pursues a system of non-hierarchical structure in this series; ‘object’ and ‘space’ become fundamental elements used to define the evenness of the painting. By translating each brush stroke into an object and independent element of the painting, paintings function only with external components: placement, configuration of an image (that does not represent or portray anything), and frame. The Evenness Series, which carries the definition of being ‘flat’ and ‘homogenous’, deals with elements of painting in an equal manner and incorporates the physical environment to produce a complete painting.
