Work By: Ah-ram Park, Yoonmi Nam, Erika Lynne Hanson, and Leo Esquivel
Los Caminos, in conjunction with Plug Projects, presents TAKE SHELTER, an exhibition featuring Kansas City area artists Ah-ram Park, Yoonmi Nam, Erika Lynne Hanson, and Leo Esquivel, whose practices navigate the domestic sphere through photography, sculpture, printmaking, textiles, and installation. TAKE SHELTER is curated by Plug Projects as a response to the location and environment of the Los Caminos apartment gallery as both an exhibition site and a living space. The selected works investigate both the physical and intangible structures that permeate our daily lives. Strategies of repetition offer moments of introspection in the midst of everyday objects, banal palettes, and familiar materials that echo the discrete patterns found in the daily routine. The work on display highlights the tension between the comforts and discomforts found in the home.
