For immediate release
HAIR + NAILS (H+N) is thrilled to present Mouth-Space, a solo exhibition by South Korean-born, Rochester MN-based artist Sophia Chai. In this series of photographs, Chai draws inspiration from her mother tongue – Hangul – a Korean alphabet of lines and shapes that mimic mouth shaping for the speaker. In her studio, Chai creates these alphabet shapes in architectural scale accounting for the bending of lines through the lens of her analog camera.
This is Sophia Chai’s second solo show with HAIR+NAILS.
