And we move

opening: Thursday, June 19, 6-8 pm

Open through Saturday June 26th - Tues-Sat 12-6pm

Location One presents And we move, an installation by New York based artist Jean Shin, which was developed during her residency at Location One. The opening will be held on Thursday June 19th from 6 to 8 pm and the exhibition will remain open to the public through Saturday July 26th, 2008.

Conceived as a site-specific installation,
And we move continues Jean Shin’s investigation into the nature of music and its production. The installation utilizes the display of clothing, a video projection on fabric, unwound audio tape, embroidery, and compositional scores on prints, to explore how music is visualized and expressed through movement of the body, and how sound can be imprinted onto a surface. The result is the creation of a multimedia installation. The title And we move refers to the phrase iterated by the conductor as he begins to work with the musicians and evokes the dynamic relationship between them. It also refers to the way in which music moves its listeners. more >>

Jean Shin creates elaborate sculptures and site-specific installations that suggest imaginary communities through the use of accumulated cast-offs. Mary Ceruti writes, “Jean Shin uses discarded material (the excess, the forgotten, the no longer useful) in works that operate between abstraction and representation. Made from the remnants of contemporary urban life, Shin’s sculptures form a sort of visual history and a social mapping.”

A Brooklyn-based artist, Jean has exhibited widely in the U.S. and abroad. Recently awarded a GSA Art in Architecture commission, she is working on a permanent large-scale work in the lobby of the Fallon Federal Building in Baltimore, Maryland. Exhibitions include the Museum of Modern Art, New Museum of Contemporary Art, Asia Society, Brooklyn Museum, Sculpture Center, Fabric Workshop, Socrates Sculpture Park, PKM Gallery (Beijing), Ssamzie Space (Seoul), Frederieke Taylor Gallery, and Galerie Eric Dupont (Paris).
