KangHee Kim: Street Errands
May 21 - Sept 18, 2019
I curated and produced a large-scale exhiibt by KangHee King called Street Errands. Street Errands is a series of collaged photographs approximately 60" x 72", that combine street scenes of New York with scenes of other places KangHee has traveled to throughout the US.
As a DACA participant, KangHee's goal in combining images is to construct her own form of surreal escapism. To be in DACA is to live in a limbo of waiting for word about her status. Layering real life photographs allows a bit of liberation from the visa restrictions, but also allows her to remain hopeful and appreciate what she has in the present.
KANGHEE KIM is a photographer working in the United States. She is represented by Benrubi Gallery. She has had multiple solo and group exhibitions, most recently, Dreamerscapes, at Wave Hill, Bronx, NY, and at D Museum in Seoul, South Korea.
