RECALL: an art installation by Su Cho
The Machine Shop is excited to present RECALL: an art installation by Su Kaiden Cho. Join us for a First Friday opening on February 1st, 2019 at 6-9pm.
Food Truck, Potato Potato will be parked outside.
The work I produce delves into issues of ethnic liminality by means of quality of ambiguity or disorientation of identity. There are different interpretations of the self with social and cultural clashes between what is internally embraced and externally imposed, as it pertains to race and ethnic identity. Being considered a minority in this culture causes a level of uncertainty regarding my own identity and beauty. My work raises questions about common standpoints in how beauty is perceived that then ultimately results in internalized self-deprecation among minority races.
