Abstract (English)

"Occupying a space somewhere between storytelling and spectacle, the video installations and live performances that comprise New York-based artist Sung Hwan Kim’s practice adopt elements of theater even while disrupting the escapism and subjective identification so often associated with the medium. In the Room (2006–2008), for example, mines the fraught dynamics of master and subaltern via a series of elliptical scenarios that present authority and interdiction — the lawful and the forbidden — as mere social conventions to be played with and outmaneuvered." -- page 1.
