September 14 - October 31, 2022
From Nancy Fyfe Cardozier Gallery:
“Through the application of diasporic viewpoints, four Korean artists critique the everyday. Housing, food ways, and subtle moments in living come to life in the works of Sang-mi Yoo, Mizin Shin, Ray Im, and Yuna Kim. Sang-mi Yoo’s architectural print works reference public built spaces and personal memory. Using French Fries as an example, Mizin Shin’s large digital prints make food ways and systems tangible. Ray Im’s work combines ceramics and photography to make everyday colors more visible. Yuna Kim’s repetitive GIF animations reflect the uncertainty and mixed feelings during the thick of the COVID 19 pandemic. What we may perceive as common occurrences become unfamiliar.
About the Artists

Shin’s work has been shown nationally and internationally in Belgium, Spain, the UK, India, and South Korea. She is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Art & Art History at University of Rochester.
Ray Im is a Korean-born-American, ceramicist and lens-based artist. Im received his MFA in Ceramics from Cranbrook Academy of Art. Im’s practice recontextualizes traditional languages inherent in ceramics and photography, discovering a contemporary material conversation.
