Shine a Light

Categories: Sturt Haaga Gallery

JULY 15 – OCTOBER 27, 2019

For almost a year, interdisciplinary artist Carole Kim has been working in Descanso Gardens as its first artist-in-residence. The results of her work will be on display at the new Shine a Light exhibition at the Sturt Haaga Gallery from July 15 – October 27, 2019.

Shine a Light will include a diverse array of work including digital metal prints, micro video projections, window treatments and a multimedia installation in the larger gallery. Over the course of the exhibition, she will present site-specific installations in different locations within the Gardens, featuring video projection onto landscape, live music and dance.

“I’ve devoted the last 20 years to pulling the moving image off the cinematic screen and having it take on spatial and sculptural form,” said Kim. “In my more recent work, I have turned directly to nature and landscape as a canvas for video projection. My residency at Descanso is a direct extension of this area of research. I could not have asked for a more perfect fit for a laboratory for my work at present.”
