So excited to open Myeongsoo Kim’s show with us tomorrow 🏝 come through from 6 to 8 to check out his amazing new works.

Postcards from the 1988 Summer Olympics in South Korea continue to appear in Kim’s work as he mines the event as a type of punctum. These keepsakes Kim has held onto signify a time when South Korea was becoming a larger global power and emulating the romanticized West while doing so. The images from the postcards are dissected with Kim’s scalpel and removed from their intended purpose of promoting an idealized cultural legacy. Image becomes object as Kim fixates on the gazes of the spectators in the background or the straining muscles of the athletes, embedding them within other images and framing them in thick sculptural materials.

The title, “land marks” suggests a cartographic instinct to the work; the way maps were originally devised as tools for navigation and conquest or the more contemporary version where seemingly no area is left unmarked by Google’s project to make visible every square inch of earth.

Kim examines the limits of photography as an infinite index of the land. Measurability in this context becomes a subjective act, distances reduced to the space between the work and the viewer. An accidental image of a night sky that Kim took on his camera takes on the guise of an amateur UFO snapshot, while one corner of the gallery is framed by the first NASA pictures of Earth from the moon, altered by Kim to form a three dimensional panel. The two contrasting works seem to ponder deep seated questions about our current image-economy: How do images find us? Is it by chance or by large organizational coercion? Are we part of a system that generates these elliptical images or is there room for intimacy?

Alex Callender’s work in circular ruins emerges from her interest in abstracting the idea of the American lawn, as a kind of container for thinking about legacies of colonial land management and everyday failed environmental infrastructure.
