Christine Sun Kim
New York- and Berlin-based artist Christine Sun Kim uses the medium of sound through technology, performance, and drawing to investigate and rationalise her relationship with sound and spoken languages. Selected group exhibitions and performances include: Sound Live Tokyo, Tokyo; nyMusikk, Oslo; Southern Exposure, San Francisco; Recess Activities, New York; Calder Foundation, New York; and the Museum of Modern Art, New York. She has released a set of 7­inch vinyl records Panning Fanning, and was a recipient of Youth Insights Artist Residency at Whitney Museum, Residency at Southern Exposure, and Fellowship at TED.

As part of Echo, Kim will play “Fingertip Quartet” a work which consists of four sound files she personally created using audio recorder, laptop, and transducers. During the performance she will communicate the concept behind each sound by typing in large projected text on the wall behind her for the audience to read and experience.  As part of her practice she is persistently questioning what she calls “the ownership of sound” and re-orienting the parameters, social values and sets of rules based around that which is omnipresent and yet invisible to us all.
