Christine Sun Kim Rustle Tustle

Being deaf in a world of sound is like living in a foreign country blindly following the cultural rules, customs, and behaviours without ever questioning them … Sound is almost like money and power. It’s so powerful that it could either disempower me and my art, or empower me. I chose to be empowered. – Christine Sun Kim

Christine Sun Kim will make her debut in the UK with an ambitious exhibition probing the social and political realities ingrained in the use of voices – hers as well as others’. In Rustle Tustle, the Berlin-based artist, who was born deaf, invites viewers to expand their understanding of what sound is and can be, undermining the all-prevailing “sound etiquette” set by hearing culture.

The exhibition will showcase a new series of drawings exploring the links between sign language and music, an interactive, walkable installation Game of Skill (2015) – which uses gallery visitors as moving instruments, teaching them a new way to listen – and a new video work, Close Readings (2015).
