I’m collaborating & transcending via#theinternet with Paris-based artist Autumn Ahn on a site-specific installation at Montserrat Galleries next week. Made possible by Maggie Cavallo. Documentation to follow.
Autumn Ahn is an artist currently based in Paris, France. In recent conversations with Montserrat Galleries the topic of distance, connections and communication have become apparent as important aspects of the work she is making now. In her ‘SEVEN' installation, she will investigate the rituals of communication with friends and colleagues who are oceans apart. With the help of Boston-based creative, and founder of Spirited Magazine, Amanda Antunes, Autumn will be directing a performance and the construction of her drawing from Paris, to Beverly. Ahn received her BFA from Boston University and has exhibited regionally, and internationally, since 2009. In 2010 she was featured in Montserrat’s Frame 301, where she installed a powerful shrine, dedicated to the human body’s response to a overstimulated world.
