Artist in Residence: Haemee Han Workshop and Community Performance
October 22, 2022 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Experience small balloon sculpture fabrication, engaging with the “Missing Project,” centering animals that are extinct or about to be. Witness Haemee Han’s large balloon sculpture fabrication that she will be focused on during her residency at BAC. At the end of the workshop will be a community performance of balloon popping, displaying the loss of life of these species.REGISTER
I would like to build a temporary installation called “Missing” which will be a combination of research, fabrication, and performance work series. I would like to research which animals and why they disappeared in east coast of the United States. The final output of the project will be a temporal installation that is inspired by the particular extinct animals. (Tentative plan : I am considering using multi colored bio degradable balloons to make a sculpture)
