Young Sun Han:sooner later
Exhibition open Tues - Sun February 7-12th. 12:30-5:30pm
Artist and Activist Young Sun Han presents "sooner later" an exhibition that raises money for Life Funds for North Korea.
Young Sun Han stands with his piece titled "Pulpit" during the opening on Friday.
Han has centered several of his exhibitions around his father, who passed away after a battle with cancer in 2010. Han often uses his father's clothing. Here he's deconstructed one of his suits.
Han talks about his artwork with a group of attendees.
A couple looks over an image of Han's father towards the end of his life. Han collected images of his father's last months and created a publication of the work. The books are on sale, with 50% of the profits going to help refugees that have escaped North Korea.
Framed images of the books are 11" x 14" or 8" x 10", and are also being sold as part of the fundraiser.

"Belated Ceremony" is a photograph honoring Han's grandmother's 60th birthday, a tradition in Korean culture.
