Second Skin: Solo Exhibition by Jean Shin

16 June - 23 July 2023

Widely recognized for her large-scale installations and sculptures, Jean Shin's artist practice is rooted in the rethinking of materials, specifically those that have been discarded at mass scale. As she told the New York Times in a 2009 interview, her criteria for materials is often something that is “cast off from a person’s life because its desirability and usefulness are questioned, that it in some way archives a personal history but also can speak to larger issues going on in our culture.” Second Skin is composed of materials used prominently in recent public art commissions, giving them another life in the realm of artistic expression. This exhibition demonstrates the possibilities of translating monumental public art works into intimate indoor experiences by building on the materials' history and finding common ecological narratives in the new works.
