Three international female artists, who met in school in Sweden (Malmö Art Academy) are now a part of an exhibition presented by Magenta Plains in New York: Skip Zone.
Tiril Hasselknippe from Arendal, Norway. Sandra Mujinga from Goma, Democratic Republic of the Congo. Kah Bee Chow, from Penang, Malaysia.
The idea of having an exhibition with 3 women from 3 very diverse backgrounds, is bound to result in an interesting, perspective-shifting showcase.
The women are sharing the space. However, each woman has her own space within the larger space, where they each present their body of work.
In the main gallery upstairs, Tiril Hasselknippe is presenting a “a site-specific installation”. The installation consists of a short-wave radio tower and program that brings in the works of the other 2 artists as well.
In the downstairs area, Sandra Mujinga is presenting a video installation. As for Kah Bee Chow, she added her artistic contribution to the windows of the Skip Zone exhibition/location and included a touch of Chinese characters/pictographs.
The women share the spotlight and intertwine their three disparate creative synergies in one space. It’s definitely special. This sharing of space creates an interesting experience for the visitor as well, as one journeys differently with each artist.
The exhibition will be open until December 17, 2017 (Wed-Sun, 11AM-6PM).
