sTo Len Principios Fundamentales Del Derecho Penal 276 pages sumi ink in found book 5 x 7 1/2 x 1 inches Exhibited in: Drawn in Books January 31 - March 6, 2021 For Principios Fundamentales Del Derecho Penal, Sto Len printed gomitaku (impressions from styrofoam and debris) onto the pages of a book on criminal law that he found in Madrid and wrote a connecting poem about water along the bottom of each page. sTo Len is a printmaker, installation, sound and performance artist with interests in improvisation and experimentation within a variety of media. His printmaking work updates traditional techniques such as Suminagashi (floating ink) and Gyotaku (fish impression) into an experimental collaboration with nature and a site of discourse on environmentalism and art activism. The cross-disciplinary nature of Len's work includes transforming public spaces such as a river into an art studio, recycling waste into art materials, and hosting water ritual performances at superfund sites. sTo Len is based in Queens, NY with familial roots in Vietnam and Virginia, and his work incorporates these bonds by connecting issues of their history, environment, traditions and politics. sTo has exhibited his artwork internationally, including exhibitions in NY, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Texas, Vietnam, Japan, Germany, Australia, Denmark, and Canada. sTo co-founded the alternative arts space Cinders Gallery in Brooklyn, NY which has exhibited hundreds of artists since its inception in 2004 and continues to curate exhibitions as a project-based Non-Profit Arts organization. As a performance/sound artist, sTo has performed at diverse venues such as MOMA PS1, New Museum, St. Marks Church, Ramiken Crucible, Silent Barn, and Roulette in New York, as well as Atelier Kunst Spiel Raum and the English Theater in Berlin, Theater de Chameleon in Amsterdam, La Société de Curiosités in Paris and most recently Manzi Gallery and Heritage Space in Vietnam. sTo Len is currently the first artist in residence at AlexRenew Wastewater Treatment facility in Alexandria, VA. He is also an artist in residence as part of the Field R/D program at Freshkills Park, a transformed landfill in Staten island, NY and is a member of Works on Water, a group of artists and activists working with and about water in the face of climate change and environmental justice concerns.
