Theresa Hak Kyung Cha (1951-82): a portrait in fragments24. Sep - 26. Oct 13 / ended Korean Cultural Centre
Mon-Fri: 10am-6pm, Sat: 11am-5pm, Closed Sunday
Works and Notes by Theresa Hak Kyung Cha with contributory "work-stations” by Ruth Barker, Sujin Lee, Jefford Horrigan and Bada Song.
‘A portrait in fragments’ is an open-ended study of works by one of the most significant Korean multimedia artists, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha. During the 70s Cha studied in California, but in 1982 Cha’s life was cruelly cut short, when she was brutally murdered in New York, aged just 31, leaving much of her work and thesis unfinished.
In co-operation with the BAM / Pacific Film Archive at Berkeley University a number of her film pieces, film scripts and synopses as well as thoughts from her notebooks, journals and photographic contact sheets will serve to present a fragmented image of a complex identity which informed Cha’s work.
This exhibition is curated by Bea du Souza, as one of the two exhibitions selected as part of the KCCUK’s inaugural 2013 Open Call for Curatorial Proposals.
