Yoonmi Nam: Arranged Flowers

南倫美: 新盆景

Yoonmi from Facebook.jpg

In the arranged flower imagery, the flowers, once cut from their roots, have only a short remaining time to live. They will quickly wither and die, but before they do, they are elegantly and elaborately arranged, as if time will stand still for them. The containers that hold them are disposable objects, such as a yogurt cup, a Styrofoam take-out box, and an instant noodle bowl. These throwaway objects and cut flowers engage in a dialogue that speaks about impermanence and persistence.


The exhibition is titled Arranged Flowers, and features artworks by Yoonmi Nam. In her research and creative work as a professor in the Department of Visual Art at the University of Kansas, Yoonmi Nam draws on her Korean background, investigating the contemporary visual language of traditional mokuhanga(woodblock printing) and Korean green-glazed celadon in the context of modern global consumer culture. Hong Kong Open Printshop is proud to present Arranged Flowers, and to explore new possibilities for contemporary applications of traditional techniques.
