Open Studio: Jeannine Han at the Queens Museum
Visit the studio residents at the Queens Museum where Jeannine Han incorporates her talents as a filmmaker and sculptor. Her film work deconstructs traditional narratives and genres, often physically inverting them into full installations or living sets. Featured prominently in these interiors are Jeannine’s textile works which tend to both feature and subvert the complex technical processes used to create them while always leaving space for an ever-present but elusive body. This corporeality presents itself as an extension of the machine, as a performer, as a model, as a character and ultimately as a creator and subject of the work itself. Jeannine studied at UCLA, The Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm and holds a Masters from The Swedish School of Textiles. She has exhibited at Entrée Gallery, Norway; Sculpture Center, New York; Bard Graduate Center of Material Studies, New York; Institute of Contemporary Art in London with Tamara Henderson; and Performa 13, New York. Jeannine is currently an Associate Professor at FIT, Pratt and Parsons, The New School.
