"Jin Soo Kim: roll - run - hit - run - roll - tick -"
2003-09-05 until 2003-10-18
Northern Illinois University Art Gallery in Chicago
Chicago, IL, USA United States of America

Jin Soo Kim's roll ˆ run ˆ hit ˆ run ˆ roll ˆ tick ˆ, an installation that emphasizes the physical and psychological nature of travel, experience and memory, is in part a continuation of two prior works: her 1999 tracks mounted at Dartmouth College and her 2001 roll ˆ run ˆ hit ˆ run ˆ roll at the David Winton Bell Gallery at Brown University. Although conceptually linked to these past pieces, this current project is formally quite distinct. 

Roll ˆ run ˆ hit ˆ run ˆ roll ˆ tick ˆ consists of eight ten-inch high by eight-foot long steel tunnels and an audio element featuring layered sounds of ticking clocks, breaking light bulbs and clanging plates from railroad tracks, emitting from speakers within the tunnels. This installation illustrates Kim‚s interest in addressing themes on an ongoing basis, often repeating and reinventing portions of past installations to create works of art that both exist in the present and reference the past. As the title roll ˆ run ˆ hit ˆ run ˆ roll ˆ tick ˆ suggests, with its final hanging hyphen, this project may indeed enjoy additional reincarnations in Kim's work. 

For the artist, this installation marks a twenty-year artistic career in the United States, one that was recently recognized by Kim‚s first solo retrospective at the Chicago Cultural Center, February - April 2003. Throughout her productive career, Kim has exhibited at major institutions including the Smithsonian, the Brooklyn Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago and the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Korea, among many others.
