Opening Night: Breathing Room by Myung-Sun Kim

August 23, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

SAVAC is excited to launch Natural Interruptions, a new series of artistic interventions in The Commons @ 401 Richmond. We will be inviting artists to make material interventions that respond to the nature of our new shared space; its history, spatial configuration, use of material, and access to light. Natural Interruptions will open with Breathing Room, an installation by Toronto-based artist Myung-Sun Kim. Join us for the opening on Thursday 23 August 2018 at 7pm

Breathing Room is a site-specific multi-part installation with interactive window panels, text and archival materials that reflects on the relational practices of archive-making. Read more about the installation here.

MYUNG-SUN KIM is an interdisciplinary artist and a cultural programmer, currently based in Toronto. Her work as sculpture, performance, and socially engaged practice, explores ideas around foodways, undocumented history, fiction, memory, resilience, and community care. She has presented her work across North America and in Finland, including FADO Performance Art Centre, Gardiner Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto, Art Gallery of Ontario, articule, Plug In ICA, and Gendai Gallery. Recently, she completed her Fellowship with the Toronto Arts Council’s Leader’s Lab at the Banff Centre.
