In Living Between Room, artists Danni Lin (dannilin.com) and Amia Megumi Yokoyama (amiayokoyama.com) explore reality through the subconscious using multi-layered, absurd, and sometimes fragmented images from their individual research and histories. Through vastly different mediums, Lin and Yokoyama blur the line between what is real and what is fake— questioning their own ideas of truth while simultaneously destabilizing the viewer’s preconceptions of authenticity. The title of this show, Living Between Room, reflects on the multifaceted, complicated, and humorous ways in which both Lin and Yokoyama question what is real through the “in-between.”

The exhibition showcases the artworks in a makeshift living room, inviting the audience to explore the living, the unreal, and the spaces in-between in a familiar setting, for where better to explore notions of authenticity and truth than in the comfort of a domestic space?
