Popblossom is pleased to present, CONDITIONS OF UNCERTAINTY, an exhibition of selected works by Ming Ying Hong at Work Program Architects Gallery inside The Monticello Arcade, 208 E Plume St, Norfolk, VA. Ming Ying Hong’s charcoal and graphite drawings explore the limits of our knowledge and experience by questioning the way we define and categorize states of being. Her bodily forms—masculine and feminine, dead and alive, aggressive and delicate—her explosions—teetering on the razor-thin edge of dissolution and whole—are common themes throughout her work. According to Hong, by “combining these seemingly contradictory elements, opposites which once defined each other overlap, ultimately dismantling the system in which one definition is privileged over another.” Through this integration of forces, Hong encourages us to examine the in-between spaces of these binaries or areas of uncertainty. Ming Ying Hong is an interdisciplinary artist based in Norfolk, VA. She has exhibited in galleries and institutions throughout the United States and currently teaches at Old Dominion University.
