Amanda Ross-Ho Creates 'Teeny Tiny Woman' for MOCA
Amanda Ross-Ho will be unveiling one of her most ambitious projects at the MOCA this summer. Teeny Tiny Woman will be transforming MOCA's Pacific Design Center into Ross-Ho's personal L.A. studio, complete with 17 panels which were built onsite in the exhibition space and then transferred to her private space in downtown L.A. After accumulating residue from production, the walls will be returned to the museum for the purpose of making a connective system of paintings, objects and textiles.
Each wall is based on the proportions of a sheet of paper and will act as a museum-scale page on which to present a non-linear presentation of data and composition. The exhibition's centerpiece will be a fabricated sculpture based on a ’60s-model photo enlarger belonging to Ross-Ho’s father. Through this, Ross-Ho engages in a wide range of immediate and historical points of view, examining both autobiographical and public domains.
Teeny Tiny Woman will run from June 23 to September 23 at the MOCA and will be a great exercise in the ambitions of great art, jumping back and forth between the context of production and the context of reception, proving a teeny tiny woman can still produce work that is larger than life.
