The Fondation Prince Pierre of Monaco presents a solo exhibition by artist Christine Sun Kim who is the winner of the 2022 Prix International d’Art Contemporain (PIAC), on the occasion of her debut exhibition in Spain organized in collaboration with La Casa Encendida.
Scheduled to take place from November 11, 2022 to January 8, 2023, and from January 24 to February 26, 2023, the exhibition was curated by Cristiano Raimondi, Artistic Director of the PIAC, and is entitled A String of Echo Traps. In the show, Berlin-based American artist Christine Sun Kim uses different formats to highlight the core of her artistic practice: musical notation, written language, infographics, sign language, the body and strategically deployed humour to challenge the politics of sound and languages.
The exhibition features three works that clearly exemplify the diverse formats and concepts that Christine Sun Kim usually employs in her work. All three works in the show highlight Christine Sun Kim’s passion for sound and how it is represented in space, which in her works, as Cristiano Raimondi says, “suggests and evokes modern themes that are urgent at a universal level, and not just specific to the Deaf community.”
