Artist Registry


The White Columns Curated Artist Registry is an online platform for emerging and under-recognized artists to share images and information about their respective practices. The Registry seeks to create a context for artists who have yet to benefit from wider critical, curatorial or commercial support. To be eligible, artists cannot be affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City.

La Bohème

2018
This 23 minutes film was the centerpiece for my solo show "La Bohème" at TOPS gallery in Memphis, TN. The film's subject is my own sister, Naoko, who has been in the throes of depression and bipolar disorder for most of her adult life. Tracing the roots of Naoko’s mental state via her obsession with Adrian Vandenberg of Whitesnake, her turtle Rin chan, and her weekly escape into the thirty-years-and-running Japanese manga comic series Crest of the Royal Family, La Bohème expands into a deeper discourse on social and political concerns associated with mental illness, self-identity and our coping mechanisms.

You Never Know What Idea You Might Have

2017
This 52 minutes film's subject is Argo Electronics, the only surviving electronics surplus retailer left from the heyday of New York’s Radio Row era. The film was created during my Session, an open-to-public residency program at Recess, located at the time in Lower Manhattan, which is only one block away from Argo. As part of the film and project at Recess, I invited a diverse group of artists to create artwork from the materials that can be found at Argo Electronics to be used as both props and catalysts for the narrative of the film.

Untitled (Monument Response)

2017
The piece was created as part of “Monument”, a group show curated by Penelope Umbrico at Gowanus E-Waste Warehouse / Lower East Side Ecology Center in Brooklyn, New York. In the context of the term “recycling” the show engaged with questions of up-cycling, down-cycling, value, commerce, consumption, materiality, and obsolescence.

All Depends On The Source Of Light

2016
This 19 minutes film was the centerpiece for my solo show "All Depends On The Source Of Light" at SLA307, New York. For many years, the nail salon industry has been a dependable entry point in the American job market for a large number of Asian immigrants. In a nail salon, adornment and luxury are commodities for sale, created and adhered to the tiny canvases of the customer’s fingernails. The project examines the relationship between the nail salon patron and practitioner, highlighting both the intimacy and detachment of their encounter.

Storyteller (In collaboration with Virginia Overton)

2013
Storyteller documents the transformation of raw material into sculpture and the thoughts on art and life of a lumber mill operator in Murfreesboro, TN. Originally simply documentation of Virginia Overton’s process of making a large-scale installation, the footage became a collaborative work between Overton, the lumber mill operator and myself in which our conversations were woven into a sculptural video installation.
