Sonya Yong James: One Hundred Blossoms and the Sweetest Scent
August 25, 2018 - December 2019
Curator: Sarah Higgins
Sonya Yong James’ year-long solo exhibition on the ZMA stairwell project wall, One Hundred Blossoms and the Sweetest Scent is a large-scale mixed-media installation.
Taking inspiration from the tale of Little Red Riding Hood, artist Sonya Jong James weaves together fiber, flowers, roots, and found objects
to explore the themes of this fable and their evolution over time. She says, “The
girl and wolf inhabit a place, call it the forest or the human psyche, where the spectrum
of human sagas converges, and their social and cultural meanings play out.”
