Summer Show 2017: This One's for You at DM CONTEMPORARY June 16- September 16
DM CONTEMPORARY, in its commitment to being a platform for relevant art that embodies the mood and spirit of the moment, is thrilled to present Soul Searching - a group exhibition that opens in NYC on the Friday following Election Day. This will be a historically defining moment, consequential for a country whose soul lies bare after a punishing election year – it is a turning point with ramifications way beyond the country’s borders.
Featuring six artists whose work directly addresses social, political, and environmental issues
"Cheryl Yun’s image-based sculptural objects or "products" simultaneously mirror and subvert fashion and consumer culture to reveal, question, and reevaluate one's relationship to the world. The ‘bikini chronology’ was ‘triggered’ by the Sandy Hook shootings. The pattern on each bikini is a heart wrenching juxta positioning of the weapon used by the perpetrators in each of the mass shootings since Sandy Hook, overlaid against a watercolor paintings by the artist’s daughter, who was about the same age as the Sandy Hook victims at the time of the shooting and who went to a school in CT not far from there. The series continues to grow, unfortunately, as the grim events, in which gun violence causes the death of innocent people, continue with geographical locations, such as Sandy Hook, Aurora, Charleston…"

PROLONGED EXPOSURE at Recession ART - Curated by Kaegan Sparks
Installation view of shopping bag installation and lingerie
Prolonged Exposure explores boredom and restlessness as charged affects, suspended between detachment and agitation, inertia and change. Works in the exhibition respond to potentially paralyzing states of waiting, idleness, distraction, and fatigue, urging viewers to consider new modes of attention.
My video Purses is included in a screening at LAX art LA and Cabinet NYC - the "Double" Wed May 9, 2012
The Double is primarily a visual phenomenon making video a natural medium for its exploration. The earliest silent films recognized the inherent doubling that occurs through picture, investigating notions of an uncanny second self in films such as the The Golem and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. Through doubling or mirroring, one is confronted with the illusion of wholeness, a dispersion of the self, and perhaps revelations or repressions of fears and desires kept hidden within the body. The Double can also represent an alter ego, a copy or forgery, or a false twin or Doppelganger. However, doubles are not exclusively physical in a bodily sense. Doubling may also be traced to the mode of production of the work, reminding us that the replication and dissemination of image is physical in its duplication as well. This lack of the original and multiplication of the double across the screen is exemplified in the bicoastal screening of The Double at LAXART in Los Angeles and Cabinet in New York.
