LAUREN HANA CHAI: A SEARCH FOR SELF

Art Show Exploring Her Korean Heritage And Family History

Korean Community Center's 1st exhibit featuring 16 works of Austin artist Lauren Hana Chai. As a self-exploration shown visually through Chai's oil paintings, these works center around her search for her missing mother, and the plight of the North Koreans. 20% of all profits will be going to the non-profit organization Liberty in North Korea.

One night only; May 25, 2017, 6-9PM at Korean Community Center 1809 Hollister Street. Houston, TX. 77080. Free to attend, food and drinks provided. Artist talk and silent auction for a painting of North Korean defector Park Yeon Mi. 

Lauren’s search for self is an ongoing process, through which she heals herself and discovers her identity as a young Korean-American female. In Last Known Locations series Lauren keeps track of the 6 cities which are her mom’s last known locations. In the process, she finds a way to relieve her loss and to connect with Mira, her mom.

In her North Korea themed paintings, Lauren delves deep into her grandmother’s personal experience and the uniquely Korean emotional pent-up “Han.” In the context of rising tensions between North Korea and the US, Lauren hopes to build awareness of, not only North Korea's situation, but its connection with the rest of the world, and to raise funds for aid to the safe rescue and refuge of North Koreans.
