Care Package: A Performance Series by Kyoung eun Kang
In conjunction with the exhibition 'Kyoung eun Kang: Every Morning, Every Evening,' on view at ISCP through February 2, 2023, the artist will perform a new iteration of her 'Care Package' series. Following the performance, Kang will talk with fellow artist and long time mentor Carol Saft about the exhibition and her collaborative multidisciplinary practice.
The 'Care Package' performance series has developed over the last 15 years. The artist will start with a care package sent by her mother in South Korea, and proceed to unpack it while incorporating sound, objects, and movement. These performances invite the audience to consider notions of home, time, care and distance, evoked by the long separation between daughter and mother.
Kyoung eun Kang is a New York-based artist born in South Korea. She received a BFA and MFA in painting from Hong-ik University in Seoul, South Korea and an MFA from Parsons, The New School for Design, New York, NY. Kang works in a wide range of media, including live performance, video, painting, photography, installation, text, and sound pieces. Her work explores geographical and cultural identities, as well as universal human themes such as affection and attachment to raise questions about how we foster and maintain relationships in an ever-changing world.
Carol Saft is an artist, filmmaker, and activist. She was born in Newark, New Jersey, and received a MFA from SUNY Purchase. Her paintings have been shown at Canada Gallery, NYC; Marquee Projects, Bellport, NY; and Mt. Airy Contemporary, Philadelphia.
