AG Gallery is pleased to announce its new exhibition “Reborn” by Brooklyn based hat artist Miki Katagiri. The Exhibition, Reborn, introduces her creations with various topics from different periods of time. Katagiri and the curator worked together to install Katagiri’s topical hats in a random order in the gallery space so that the new meanings and connections appear in the installation. All the visitors are welcomed and given freedom to find their own unique connections between the each topical hats. The exhibition is opening on May 4, 2019 and it will be on view through Sunday, June 2, 2019. Please join us for the opening reception and meet the artist on Saturday, May 4, 6-8PM.

Miki Katagiri lives and works in New York since 1989. Miki Katagiri has over 18 years of designing and making topical hats. The subjects that she creates works about are environment, nature, politics, and the universe. They may seem separate subjects but are all connected in real life and in her work. Her work has been presented in galleries in New York, New Jersey in the United States, and Tokyo in Japan.
After many years of working with a renowned hat designer, Patricia Underwood, Katagiri is now giving workshops in her studio in Williamsburg, and taking custom orders.

Imagine how everything is interconnected,
Take care to be nicer to each other….
Nothing is eternal, everything passes.
Itʼs a person’s choice how to spend life.
“Clean the cup (which is full) and put clear water in the cup.”
Hope refreshes us to restart again,
Reborn

–Miki Katagiri

Roses on a Winter Day

by Sascha Mallon

February 26, 2017 – March 12, 2017 
Opening reception: Sunday, February 26, 6-8pm

AG Gallery proudly presents Roses on a Winter Day, a solo exhibition by artist Sascha Mallon. Please join us at the opening reception of this sensual exhibition on Sunday February 26, and meet the artist. 

About Exhibition
Roses in this exhibition are a metaphor for the ambivalence of love. Sascha challenges expressing her personal feelings, emotions, and memories about and around love using her narrative drawings and writings which together she calls “visual poems”. In her work, roses appears not as symbol or metaphor of subjective beauty, but as if it is a very sensitive and personal part of herself. Love happens and grows inside and out outside our mind and this show is about the importance of the both side of love. How much can an individual lover put out and share her personal love out of her comfort? How much can we understand and how will we receive, analyze, or simply feel them from her work? Those might be some of her and our challenges, questions, and joys in this exhibition.

~Message From The Artist About Roses on a Winter Day~
Roses represent the mixture between beauty and also the pain that comes with too much attachment to people. It is attachment, not true love, when there is pain.
Winter represents the absence of love. The beauty of roses reminds me of the beauty of the heart. Flowers are vulnerable and the roses usually sleep in the winter. Coldness represents the busy life where people don’t have time for each other, or it can be the absence of love for other reasons. The roses sleep until there is spring again. Love comes in cycles. As love is one of the central things, I like to think about roses on a winter day seems to be the perfect title. I think in live all is about love, or what we think love is. It is about the love we feel, the love we think we don’t get, or the love we are not able to give. I think everything is about love, because when we truly love we are happy and kind to each other and then the roses even bloom in the winter.

About Artist
Sascha Mallon is a Brooklyn based visual artist who also works as a hospital artist-in-residence at a cancer center doing art with the patients.
