MATERIAL QUESTS Award @ AJW 2017
Copper, brass, mineral powder
The Benaki Museum Shop is hosting Hao-Han Jhang’s exhibition “Hormones”, as part of the exhibition series Material Quests. These exhibitions, organised and held at the Benaki Museum Shop, wish to pres- ent and promote artists from the fields of applied arts and design.
Hao-Han Jhang was one of the winners of the 2017 Athens Jewelry Week. She received the MATERIAL QUESTS Award, the opportunity to host a solo exhibition at the Benaki Museum Shop during the 2018 Athens Jewelry Week, which will take place on May, 23-30.
The artist’s creative work focuses on the harm inflicted on the human body by environmental “hor- mones” (living organisms). Hao-Han uses the external representation of diseases as a methodology for the creation of body jewelry, imitating how these substances impact the human body as they grow and spread within.
The exhibition is realised with the support of the National Culture and Arts Foundation of Taiwan.
Duration: 23.05.2018 – 27.05.2018
Benaki Museum, 138 Pireos St, Athens
