EUN-HA PAEK
GHP Fellowship Artist November 27 - February 23, 2018
 
New York, NY – Greenwich House Pottery is pleased to announce Eun-Ha Paek as our Fellowship Artist from November 27, 2017 – February 23, 2018. 

Eun-Ha Paek is an animation filmmaker and illustrator based in Brooklyn, NY who creates narratives that use humor to process the full range of human emotion. She brings the characters in these narratives into the physical world through ceramics, creating sculptures that are familiar and yet strange – at times dark, but always playful. 

In the same way a boulder on a hill stores potential energy, a banana peel on the floor can be viewed as the set-up to a joke, storing potential “ha-has.” Knowing this might cause a smirk, without any real action taking place. My sculptures use this potential to construct narratives on the precipice of the familiar and strange; to explore grief and hope with humor. – Eun-Ha Paek

Eun Ha PaekPaek has worked as an art director, graphic designer, animator and concept artist in a variety of media, including broadcast, web and print. She holds a B.F.A. from the Rhode Island School of Design, and has won a number of awards and grants for her work. Most recently, Paek received a grant from the Rudy Autio Fund for Creative Initiatives and was a Windgate Scholar at the Archie Bray Foundation. Her animated films have been screened at the Guggenheim Museum, SXSW, Sundance Film Festival and a number of international film festivals. 

Paek is a long-time member of the GHP community and had a solo exhibition in the Jane Hartsook Gallery in 2015. As an artist in residence, Paek will work on a project that considers the mutability of memory. She will 3-D scan and print a hand-built sculpture, and then scan and print each subsequent iteration of the sculpture, allowing the regular defaults in the process to accumulate. In the same way that parts of a memory gain or lose resolution over time, the sculpture will slowly mutate with each remaking.

Our residencies foster an artist’s development by providing time, space and material in the center of the art world. The resident has access to a shared private studio space (20’ x 17’) during the Pottery’s regular business hours, free stocked clay, and access to gas and electric firings. Eun-Ha Paek’s residency will run from November 27, 2017 – February 23, 2018.

Greenwich House Pottery, a non-profit (501c3) organization, is New York City’s premier ceramic facility. Originally founded in 1905 to teach immigrants a marketable skill in the spirit of the Arts & Crafts Movement, the Pottery is now an arts center for the local and international community that strives to support the history and future of the ceramic arts through its educational facilities, artist residency and gallery.
