February 21 is the final day to view Lucille Kim’s stop-motion animation/video performance, 1973 – 1979 at External Space, hosted in the Learning Zone.
Lucille Kim’s art practice involves drawing, video, performance, sound and photography used in the explorations of self, and her Cambodian family history.
Throughout the video, Kim performs coin therapy on her father, a healing technique that relieves aches and pains, and other illness of the body—connecting her to the pain that her father went through when working in Cambodian rice fields between 1973 to 1979, during the Khmer Rouge regime.
…a coin functions as the drawing medium, with the body as its canvas. This technique not only expands the definition of drawing as a practice, but also critically examines our relationship as artists with the subjects we study and portray through drawing. Alvis Choi
