Artist Talk: Jean Shin
Jean Shin is nationally recognized for her monumental installations that transform everyday objects into elegant expressions of identity and community. For each project, she amasses vast collections of a particular object -- prescription pill bottles, sports trophies, sweaters -- which are often sourced through donations from individuals in a participating community. These intimate objects then become the materials for her conceptually rich sculptures, videos, and site-specific installations. Distinguished by her meticulous, labor-intensive process, and her engagement of the community, Shin's arresting installations reflect individuals' personal lives as well as collective issues that we face as a society.
