Paradise, a word taken from the Village Voice ads transformed into a neon installation 24/7 display inside the storefront of Artie’s Hardware, the neighborhood twenty-four hour locksmith located at 140 W. 14th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues. Artie’s becomes a Paradise, where products, tools, and hardware are aesthetically and logically arranged, and where artists can find products to help them realize their creative dream.
The installation will be located at Artie’s Hardware & Locksmith, 140 W 14th Street.
Skowmon Hastanan migrated from Bangkok to The Bronx in 1973. She uses various mediums, including light installation to painting and drawing on paper; artworks involve narratives about journey, identity, spirituality, violence, and the media.
