The Backroom at Kim's Corner Food
“For this project I will look to Kim’s Corner Food as a hyphenated whole, a corner shop-artist studio-gallery-showroom-recycling center (surely there’s more?).
Drawing upon the restless pictographic invention of Thomas Kong’s collages and the idiosyncratic, fortuitous and deeply contextual exhibition space that is The Back Room, the show will imagine likeminded, one-roof-multiple-identity enterprises.
By conjuring new slashies, I will consider the ad hoc spaces in which culture—perhaps not always art, but certainly something similar—is produced and disseminated.”
