During her time at The Branch, animator Heeyoung Park reminds us how the fragile existence of our lives (the seed within us) inevitably holds enormous potential for power and beauty.
For her exhibition “Extraordinary Tales of Everyday Life,” Jeongran hid little artworks in the corners of the tiny library, on shelves, and even in the bathroom. She shared both her painstaking process of art creation, and alongside it, the beauty in the little things.
A temporary restaurant is the opening scene for a multiple-month community based arts and ecology project where we bring to life an empty plot of urban land and invite the community to cultivate food, relationships, and creativity.
