Reception: Thursday, June 21, 6 - 8 PM
A.I.R Gallery is proud to announce Baguette Hell, an exhibition of an interactive installation and artist-designed apps by A.I.R. Fellowship Artist Bang-Geul Han.
In her first solo exhibition in New York City, Korean conceptual artist Bang-Geul Han focuses on two popular digital media platforms – iPhone Apps and Twitter. Han’s latest interactive projects explore changing modes of communication and shifting boundaries of personal and public space.
Playing on the word “bagatelle” (meaning a trifling or inconsequential thing), Baguette Hell features a series of interactive iPad and iPhone apps toying with images of its namesake French bread. Reminiscent of Dadaist exercises, the apps are seemingly impractical or pointless, but are also playful and delightfully strange.
