Hyeree Christina Mary
by Hyeree Ro
Four moving pieces in different heights and varying slopes are physically reconfigured with each different location: Incheon to Santa Rosa to Seoul to New Haven. The names - Hyeree, Christina, and Mary - appear in each location, suggesting different identities, also thematized by English and Korean languages, schoolbooks, classrooms, understanding and misunderstanding.
Hyeree Ro is interested in how objects can relate to the body. Finding various ways to relate them lies as the background for her performances. Her sculptural, performative, and narrative based works embody various aspects of life such as personal history, memories, places, cities, language, body, movement, and stories. Ro received her BFA from Korea National University of Arts in 2017, her BA in Law from Yonsei University in 2011, and her MFA from Yale University in 2021.
