Sung Hwan Kim, Washing Brain and Corn 2012

The Tanks will showcase a new installation by Sung Hwan Kim, one of the key artists of his generation working in an interdisciplinary way with video and performance art. In his work, the artist takes on the role of director, editor, performer, composer, narrator and poet, collecting and collaging encounters, sounds, sculptures and images from his changing homes of Seoul, Amsterdam and New York. Drawing on a rich history of performance and film, inspired and taught by artists such as Joan Jonas, alongside cultural influences from Korea, his work is a unique form of story-telling.
