Upside Down Noon

Artisphere
Works in Progress Gallery
Arlington, VA
June 18 - August 17, 2014

Press Release excerpt:

During her residency at Artisphere, Kim will produce a new series of visual scores and transcripts, engage visitors in visual conversations by way of projection, and experiment with a new installation suspending wind chime-like objects for visitors to experience by feeling and listening.

Through the appropriation and reclamation of sound, Kim disentangles it from its societal norms, employing it in her own unique work and in the process, re-framing her deafness as a defining strength. Upside Down Noon invites us to broaden our awareness; considering social and linguistic parameters surrounding sound, wind as a misconception, and that our voice is not a given.

Special thanks to Josh Stoltzfus, Grayson Heck, Barry Halvorson, Cynthia Connolly, Julia Young, Mia Pennywell, and Ryan Holladay!
