Ginny Huo
Brooklyn, NY



ARTIST STATEMENT: I use mixed media to reconstruct personal narratives and cultural modern myths dictated in a system of communication through re-imagined collaboration and play. My artwork stems from my experience of the political landscape that has largely constructed my identity. The political in this narrative can be traced to my South Korean family’s assimilation to American life, and the traditional-cultural cautionary stories that were told to me as a child. They are captured in my work as the influx of fact and fiction. Inspired by historical story telling, the focus of my practice recently is to investigate political influence and the effects of religious myths to question hegemonic social narratives. While personally deconstructing my upbringing in a highly conservative Mormon faith, my new body of work discusses the pains of patriarchy and the hidden wounds it creates. By taking the vulnerable, personal and shared experiences of people from the community, I display the hidden realities in nonlinear, exaggerated and animated ways. In my work, I contort abstracted elements of the human body and nature in efforts to cloak the severity and subvert the discomfort of patriarchy. In the forms of video, performance, installations and public projects that are comprised with historical research collaged with humor, I seek to tell narratives of the unseen stories of the everyday people and communities I connect with.
