Hanna Shim's Pillow Garden is an immersive installation featuring oversized plant-inspired soft sculptures, transform the gallery into a sensory haven.

Crafted from unconventional soft materials, these sculptures challenge the traditional gallery space. Beyond visuals, the installation weaves fragrances, sounds, and sentiments from Shim's Korean heritage into the visitor's experience. Juxtaposing the historical neglect of female textile artists with its transformative potential, "Pillow Garden" becomes a symbolic realm where marginalized perspectives thrive.

This exhibit invites viewers to explore the intersection of art and sensory perception, fostering a unique and profound engagement with space, form, and identity.
