In all her work, Mikaela is interested in exploring the complexities of memory, guilt, and the idea of purpose. In her debut novel, she tells the parallel stories of a high school janitor and a student at the same school, in a fictional, New Hampshire resort town and the history and people that encapsulate the community.

Friday, February 16 @ 7:00 pm - Thursday, March 1 @ 7:00 pm

This is a collection of stories in progress about leaving old worlds behind to enter new ones. They are stories of deconstruction; challenging fundamental truths; learning languages as a means of escaping the past, becoming a different person, or engaging with a new place; people coming to terms with heartbreak, loss, abuse and destruction; traveling, exploring, and returning to a different home from the one you've left behind; questioning the concept of home; examining why people adhere to culture; and journeys that can take place without ever leaving home.

”With the point of departure in natural dyeing, I examine various types of fermentation processes, cultures of microorganism and the manner in which my body affects and participates with them, over time. What drives my work forward is a fascination and curiosity for the non-human bodies that the human bodies live in symbiosis with. How do we communicate with the creatures that form such a crucial part of us?
In my performances I’m questioning if our body really ends at the skin. Is my body just an extension of the bacterial culture? What happens if we change our perspective into a post-humanistic point of view where the boundaries between nature/culture, mind/body, human/animal fusions together? What happens if we stop thinking the world circulates around the human species and confesses the essential of other body’s existence?

"The idea that the passage of the magical threshold is a transit into a sphere of rebirth is symbolized in the worldwide womb image of the belly of the whale...instead of passing outwards, beyond the confines of the visible world, the hero goes inwards, to be born again.”

My work aims to reconnect the viewer with these delicate, intricate forms, to appreciate and view them in a different light.”

TAKT TALK by Donghwan Ko

"My work revolves heavily around understanding the dynamic nature of the spaces which we define as home. The space within the home is a temporary space that requires settlement and adaptation, ultimately becoming a cardinal site for our privacy and intimacy. It is, however, paradoxically complex, limited, temporary, divided, and empty. My practice explores the reasoning behind why we call a place ‘home’ and what conditions are required to encourage us to inhabit a given space."

"Through drawing and painting I am focusing on themes of the human body, sexual desire, the conscious and the unconscious mind. I am interested in exposing social constructs that penetrate our intimate realm. Through a wide range of materials, I am pouring the dichotomies of existence into physical form, questioning the controversies of the socially legitimized representations and parameters of sexuality.
