about ISConnects... The panel did a great job of explaining and sharing
their experience in public art. On the whole one of the best ISC events,
as it was right on target for artist[s] - like us.” — ISConnects Attendee, 2011

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015 Artist Walk and Talk with Jae Ko
Join the International Sculpture Center in collaboration with Grounds For Sculpture for ISConnects: Artist Walk and Talk with Jae Ko. Jae Ko works primarily with huge rolls of paper, transforming this every day, common medium into works of fluid abstraction and beauty. On June 17, Jae Ko will present an artist talk surrounding her 80-foot long paper installation, Shiro, in the East Gallery at Grounds For Sculpture, before taking a stroll with the audience to view more works in the Domestic Arts Building. The event will begin in the East Gallery at the site of Shiro before continuing on to the Domestic Arts Building. A reception will follow. Donít miss this unique artist talk experience!
Jae Ko lives and works in Washington D.C. She has been working with paper for the last twenty years and with rolled paper in particular for fifteen years. Inspiration for her sculptures comes from topographic, geologic, industrial architecture, and constructivist forms, as well as the long standing tradition in the use of and profound importance of paper in Korean, Chinese, and Japanese cultures. Jae Ko received her BFA from Wako University, Tokyo, Japan (1988) and her MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore, MD (1998). She was one of the ten national recipients of the 2012 Anonymous Was a Woman award, and has been the subject of a number of solo and group shows. Her largest piece to date, Shiro, opens on March 28, 2015 at Grounds For Sculpture.
