Such stuff, the first solo exhibition by Tai Yin Ho, is made up of new and recent work on the topic of value and matter. Made of stone, mundane catalytic objects, and filler materials, the show’s small sculptural installations use the action of display to investigate stuff’s physical actuality and inscribed meaning.
The show’s title comes from the mouths of Sam Spade and Prospero — two fellows who had an inkling of the metaphysical allure of property.
Yin is a graduate of ITP at the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU, the London School of Economics, and Birmingham-Southern College. She contributes writing to Rhizome, and teaches at the School of Art, Purchase College and the Courant Institute, New York University.
