TOUCHING MY SHADOW: Alayna Ho's Artist Book Release Event

May.21, Saturday, 8-10 PM
Bungee Space: 13 Stanton St, New York, NY 10002

Alayna Ho's Artist Book will be released at Bungee Space in May.21, Sat, 8-10pm. Artist talk and reading will start at 8:30 PM.

After graduating from  Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) printmaking, Alayna did her art residency at Women's Studio Workshop, Rosendale, NY during the Pandemic.

This book draws on the feeling of isolation brought on by the ongoing pandemic, creating a visual narrative exploring how we can regain touch during a time when it is so heavily discouraged. In this book, shadows reclaim a physical presence, questioning whether touching the shadow of something can be the same as touching the thing itself.

All text block images are silkscreen printed, the text is letterpress printed, and the cover is printed on the Charles Brand Press using monoprint and de-boss methods. The hand-stitched pattern along the spine was designed by the artist, utilizing elements of traditional Japanese stab binding techniques.

Edition of 50, signed by the artist


The event is open to the public, come and enjoy the book, reading, and drinks!
