We interviewed artist Tai Hwa Goh about her installation, Leaks in the hallway of BRIC House. She creates brightly colored, delicately layered installations from hand-printed paper. The title of her installation, Leaks, references the unintended and therefore undesired openings for fluid to escape a container. Leaks can also be seen as the point where the contents of a container and exterior material can be exchanged. For her installation at BRIC, Goh uses BRIC House as a metaphorical body or container of the brimming creative minds of the people that walk its halls and inhabit its spaces. We wanted to know more about her practice as an artist, and the colorful work she created.
