Unwritten Stories Cecile Chong, Maiko Kikuchi and Constance Slaughter
About the show
The exhibition project of three artists (Chinese-Ecuadorian, Japanese, and French) brought together by their exploration of narrative through painting, video, and sculpture.
Cecile Chong has exhibited worldwide, including a recent solo show at BRIC (New York). Through a slow and careful process, she makes multi-layered wax paintings that juxtapose images and materials collected over the years - memories of her Chinese-Ecuadorian childhood and fairytales.
Maiko Kikuchi is a performance and visual artist from Japan, who has shown her work at La Mama and other theaters in New York. She offers riddles based on cultural differences and language. Her unique quirky, poetic style is illustrated in her animation videos presented at HERE.
Constance Slaughter’s sculptures are made of wire and semi-transparent fabric. Her child-animal-toy figures, both funny and dark, explore our unresolved memories, dreams and fears.
