Preview "Father Land" Projection Event

Home · Land · Nature is Han Qin’s first solo exhibition at Gallery North. The exhibition features small, medium, and large cyanotypes, woodblock prints, and drawings that each explore concepts of home and the process of relocation. Drawing from her own experience of migration, Qin renders moments of passing through, of conflict, of getting together, and of migrating into form and image. Her artwork incorporates poignant, structural elements of Confucian philosophy, conveying the fluidity of identity and its evolution. There is a sense of displacement, chaos, triumph and eventual replanting. Qin translates social phenomena and movement – among groups and individuals – into works which incorporate traditional cyanotype, woodblock printing, 3D scanning, and digital printing methods. In collaboration with the Three Village Community Trust (TVCT), Gallery North will also present an outdoor projection event featuring Han Qin’s multimedia work at the TVCT’s Immigrant Worker Houses, located behind the Bruce House at 148 Main Street in Setauket. This projection
event will highlight the important experiences of all immigrant groups throughout the history of the Three Village community.

Han Qin lives and works in New York as an artist and adjunct professor at Stony Brook University. She earned her BFA and MFA in Printmaking from China Academy of Art (Hangzhou) and her MFA in Digital Arts from Pratt Institute in 2017. Qin has exhibited in nationally and internationally, including shows at the Nassau County Museum of Art, The Heckscher Museum of Art, and the Changjiang Museum of Contemporary Art.

This exhibition is generously sponsored by Jefferson’s Ferry, bld Architecture, and Suffolk County’s Department of Economic Development and Planning. The exhibition, reception, and affiliated events will be free and open to the public.
