Join us for an exhibition walkthrough of Pinions! Come and activate some works with the artists and curator!

Pinion is a multiple-meaning word defining a binding gear and/or the outer edges of a bird wing. With this homonym in mind, Pinions is a duo exhibition by Jessica Ferrer and Yoonshin Park that thinks through margins and bindings. Using book-objects, paper weavings, and abstraction, these artists assemble visual systems of connections and edges through haptics and activations. How does one become aware and work with fringes and contact? How can somatic, sensorial, and meditative practices mark and measure these phenomenological events? How does weaving and book-making translate these notions into tactile, non-static, and beautiful art objects?

Curated by John H. Guevara as part of HATCH 22-23 Curatorial Resident Program at Chicago Artists Coalition.

Jessica Ferrer is a Chicago-based artist and writer. She explores forms of tacit knowledge and meditation through weaving, text, video, and sound. Her work lives in the homes of friends, family, and acquaintances. It has been shown at the Woman Made Gallery, the Chicago Public Library, and the Gund Gallery. She received her BA in Studio Art and English from Kenyon College in 2017.

Yoonshin Park is a Chicago based multimedia artist, curator, and educator working with sculptural papers, artist books, and installations. Her interest in the comprehensive process of papermaking and bookbinding caters her work to encompass various elements woven into complete objects. She often uses her experience as a foreign transplant to question space and its implications in defining one’s identity as the inspiration behind her work. She received her M.A. and M.F.A. in Interdisciplinary Book and Paper Arts from Columbia College Chicago. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and reviewed by TimeOut Chicago and Sculpture Magazine. Park was born in Seoul, Korea, and currently resides in Chicago, IL.
