‘Bedroom HK’ Reception
1400 North American Street, Gallery 100 C, Philadelphia
Bedroom, founded in 2018 by Angela Jang (C '15) and Michael Yu, is a multi-disciplinary space located on the top floor of an industrial building in the Tai Kok Tsui neighborhood of Hong Kong. In addition to functioning as an art & design residence, Bedroom provides a small yet versatile venue for young artists, designers, musicians and curators alike to showcase works that are undiscovered locally. This two-part exhibition aims to showcase a snippet of the experience of visiting Bedroom, as it continues to engage with the space and create projects that resonate with the local community. Exhibiting artists include Angela Jang, Heejin Jang, and Lousy.
Part 1: Noise Bath: Angela Jang and Heejin Jang
Exhibition on view: November 14 - December 7, 2019
Noise Bath consists of sound work by Heejin Jang accompanied by audiovisual installation work by Angela Jang. The interplay between certain frequencies of Heejin’s sound and Angela’s video projections on water draws out and traces the invisible forces and voices in this world. The performance acts as a ritual that conjures up the inexplicable presence around us and reflects shadows of their restless transfigurations like in the isle of the Tempest.
“The isle is full of noises, sounds, and sweet airs that give delight and hurt not.”
–The Tempest, Act 3, Scene 2
Heejin Jang is a multidisciplinary artist currently based in Hamburg. Heejin presents a set of improvised computer music, which she arranges and synthesizes to create a sonic space that constantly fluctuates between phenomenal situations of meditation or digitally induced panic. She has lived, exhibited and performed around the globe.
