a real line ran near an ear
Beginning on Monday, January 13, artist Christine Sun Kim and her collaborators Stijn Schiffeleers and Shira Grabelsky take up residence at Southern Exposure to produce a month-long process oriented project. Deaf since birth, Kim creates work largely reflecting on her relationship to sound and language. Using breath as a physical limitation and wind as a misconception, Christine leads a workshop to investigate the various states of breath, wind, sound, silence and communication as they exist and transform through physical interaction and installation. During the course of the project, Kim with Schiffeleers and Grabelsky will lead workshops, hold open hours and develop new work on site that results in a participatory public performance. Kim invites the public to watch her conversations with collaborators as the project develops.

The public is encouraged to ask questions, make suggestions and engage in the project.

More about Christine Sun Kim
California born, New York based artist Christine Sun Kim uses the medium of sound through technology to investigate and rationalize her relationship with sound and spoken languages. She holds an MFA in Sound/Music from Bard College. She gives workshops and talks on sound art, combines musical notations and several other information systems to produce visual scores and conducts an experimental choir – the members use facial expressions to “sing” and produce sound through a set of piano wires and transducers. Kim was a participant in the 2013 Sound Live Tokyo festival, where she released Panning Fanning, a set of 7-inch vinyl records. Her drawings were featured in the 2013 Museum of Modern Art exhibit Soundings: A Contemporary Score and she was the recipient of a TED2013 fellowship. This is her first project in San Francisco.
