Florida State University’s Facility for Arts Research and Museum of Fine Arts is excited to welcome Jiha Moon for a virtual artist talk February 17that 6pm. The talk will open with a virtual tour of ceramic work in Jiha Moon: Chasing Spirits exhibition currently on view at the Museum of Fine Art until March 19th.

About the Artist:

Jiha Moon is from DaeGu, Korea, and lives and works in Atlanta, GA. She received her MFA from the University of Iowa, Iowa City. Moon’s gestural paintings, mixed media, ceramic sculpture, and installation explore fluid identities and the global movement of people and their cultures. She says, “I am a cartographer of cultures and an icon maker in my lucid worlds.” She is taking cues from wide ranges of history of Eastern and Western art, colors and designs from popular culture, Korean temple paintings and folk art, internet emoticons and icons, fruit stickers and labels of products from all over the place. She often teases and changes these lexicons so that they are hard to identify yet familiar.

Join us for a FAR & Away virtual lecture with virtual artists in residence Kei Ito and Andrew Keiper. The artists will be discussing their photographic, video and sound based collaboration work as well as a new project created in residence with FAR. A screening of their piece, New Light-Narrowcast, will be on display at FAR, 3216 Session Road, March 7th-11th and a pop up show of their work will be on view concurrently at the Museum of Fine Art. More details to come.

About the Artists:

Kei Ito is a visual artist working primarily with experimental photography and installation art who is currently teaching at the International Center of Photography (ICP) in NYC. Ito received his MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art in 2016. Ito’s work addresses issues of deep intergenerational loss and connections as he explores the materiality and experimental processes of photography, visualizing the invisible: radiation, memory and life/death.

Ito’s work, fundamentally rooted in the trauma and legacy passed down from his late grandfather - a survivor of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, meditates on the complexity of his identity and heritage through examining the past and current threats of nuclear disaster and his present status as an US-immigrant. Many of Ito’s artworks transformed both art and non-art spaces into temporal monuments that became platforms for the audience to explore social issues and the memorials dedicated to the losses suffered from the consequences of those issues.

Andrew Paul Keiper is an artist and educator based in Baltimore, Maryland where he teaches at the Maryland Institute College of Art in the Animation and Film & Video programs. Working in sound, image and installation, Andrew's work dances across the boundaries of sound art, experimental music and sound design.

Field recordings, drones, drumming and sound designed evocations of places remote in time and place commingle in Keiper’s work, inviting the audience to listen in ways they may not be accustomed to listening. Much of Andrew's work contemplates the legacy of his grandfather's role in the creation of the atomic bomb, and the ramifications of atomic weaponry past and present. Andrew also maintains a practice as a sound designer for film, and as a musician and audio engineer.

In January of 2018 Keiper and Ito presented their Rubys project, Afterimage Requiem at the Baltimore War Memorial. The exhibition received coverage by the Washington Post Magazine, the BBC, the Baltimore Sun and others. In 2016, they brought this work, along with others to the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where they exhibited their first large-scale art museum exhibition, Archives Aflame.

Looking forward to seeing you at these events!
