Romi Kim: Sticky Extensions
SUM gallery, Vancouver, BC - To Dec 8
Vancouver’s Romi Kim – a.k.a. House of Rice drag artist Skim – presents an inter-disciplinary exhibition in collaboration with Romeo Villanueva III and Queer Based Media’s Chris Reed and Kendell Yan. Employing performance, video, installation and workshops, Kim examines relationship to community and place. They also ri on an “untranslatable” Korean word to explore both negative and positive conno-tations of “stickiness,” from feelings of annoyance and disgust to those of warmth and connection.
