Arnolfini - est 1961

Join artist Christine Sun Kim as she talks about the relationship between language, sound and listening, and see her new video installation at Arnolfini’s Dark Studio.

Deaf from birth, Christine Sun Kim is an artist working with concepts around sound and visual language.

Working across conventions of American Sign Language (ASL), Kim investigates the identity of her own voice and her associations of sound as a deaf person. She asks audiences to consider the role that sound and listening have in building an experience of both inner and outer worlds and the relationship between, silence, language and listening.

Artist Christine Sun Kim has been awarded a residency at Arnolfini as part of a joint commission in partnership with DASH as part of the IN (Disability Arts IN the Mainstream) project.

A new series of drawings will be exhibited at Arnolfini from Friday 20 March 2015 to Tuesday 5 May 2015. Her video installation within Arnolfini’s Dark Studio will be open to the public from Friday April 24th to Tuesday 5 May.
