Hanna Jaeun - Those Who Gather
August 4th - 29th, 2017
Brooklyn-based pop surrealist artist, Hanna Jaeun returns to Arch Enemy with Those Who Gather, the follow up to her 2016 collection, On Borrowed Time. The new body of work follows one single narrative, portraying a tea party rendezvous in the middle of the night, driven by her signature use of animal and animal-human hybrid characters to assist in exploring themes of isolation and a yearning to belong. This particular story takes place in a world within the subconscious with set pieces like the ‘house’ meant to represent the self, and the characters each representing a state of mind, their relationships and interactions influencing the story across the full collection of paintings, like a playful dream.
