FRIDAY 27 MAY 2016, 6:00PM-9:00PM
The exhibition The Cops and Robber Task presents a series of Cindy Ji Hye Kim’s most recent paintings and sculptures. Working with oil, acrylic, and pastel on canvas, Kim’s paintings explore the boundaries of lived experience and the fictional stage of memory, which is mediated through various visual devices she uses in her studio. What do you see when you close your eyes? What do you see when you try to remember? The images of cameras, projectors, and monitors partake in the narrative function of perception and artifice, stepping in and out of the painting as an observer, a voyeur, and a subject.
CINDY JI HYE KIM received her BFA from Rhode Island School of Design in 2013 and her MFA from Yale School of Art in 2016. She has recently exhibited at Abrons Art Center (New York, NY), Rose Gallery (Brooklyn, NY), and Yale University Art Gallery (New Haven, CT). She has participated in residency programs at Vermont Studio Center and Ox-Bow School of Art, and will be an artist in residence at The Banff Centre this summer. Kim currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
Cindy Ji Hye Kim would like to thank Chris Fernald for writing a text for the exhibition.
