Tai Hwa Goh’s recent work attempts to delineate the boundary between the inner and outer realms of the body. She is specifically interested in revealing the body’s experience through sense perception. Her aim is to expand the boundaries of perception to whole body, which she believes to be the domain of basic human experience. For Goh, the limitation of the corporeal is also the starting point to explore the body’s vulnerability and make an inquiry into the nature of human existence. She explores the opaque and ambiguous world between oblivion and memory, and the dichotomy between the resilient, yet vulnerable body and the recoverable, rather strong selfness. By transmitting her own experience using these images and spatial structure, she is experimenting with cognitive expansion and probing the shared domain of human experience, where similarity of images begins to form a symbolical linguistic system.
Tai Hwa Goh creates installation that blur the definition between printmaking and sculpture. Her highly labor-intensive creations showcase the technical skills she has to create three-dimensional forms utilizing the traditional printmaking methods. Her works evokes biological forms and landscape, reflecting on the accumulation of memory and experience.
Born in South Korea, Tai Hwa Goh received her Bachelor’s degree from Seoul National University and her Master’s degree from the University of Maryland. Her work has been shown at various prominent institutions and art events in New York and New Jersey such as International Print Center New York, DUMBO Art Festival, Islip Museum, William Paterson University, AIR Gallery, and Snug Harbor Center for the Art. She had an installation show at Sunroom Project Space at Wave Hill and BRIC. Her list of awards includes but are not limited to Lower East Side Print Shop, Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts, National Endowments for the Arts, Guttenberg Art, Emerge 11 and Vermont Studio Center. She was the Artist-in-Residence at the Museum of Arts and Design’s Artist Studios Program in 2017, and the Gold Award winner of AHL Foundation’s AHL-T&W Foundation Contemporary Visual Art Awards 2017.
